Orthopaedic surgeons at Keck Medicine of USC are specialists in revision total shoulder arthroplasty, a procedure that is relatively uncommon compared with other revision arthroplasties. Most often, patients require a revision shoulder arthroplasty due to infection in the initial prosthesis or loosening of the initial prosthesis.

Surgeons at USC Orthopaedic Surgery are skilled in the management of the challenges of revision total shoulder arthroplasty and have extensive experience with complex cases. Complications of the procedure can include fractures caused by the removal of the initial prosthesis stem and damage to nerves and blood vessels during the prosthesis removal.
