Resurfacing Hemiarthroplasty

A resurfacing hemiarthroplasty is a type of shoulder joint replacement surgery.

This procedure involves replacing the joint surface of the humeral head with a cap-like prosthesis. With its bone-preserving advantage, resurfacing hemiarthroplasty offers patients with arthritis an alternative to standard stemmed shoulder replacement.

It also avoids the risks of component wear and loosening that may occur with conventional total shoulder replacements over time.
