Shoulder replacement surgery started in the United States in the 1950s. It was used as a treatment for severe shoulder fractures. Over the years, this surgery has come to be used for many other painful conditions of the shoulder. These include: • Osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease) • Rheumatoid arthritis • Post-traumatic arthritis • Rotator cuff tear arthropathy (a combination of severe arthritis and a massive non-repairable rotator cuff tendon tear) • Avascular necrosis (osteonecrosis) • Failed previous shoulder replacement surgery
