Computer-assisted Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Know About
Computer-Assisted Robotic Shoulder Replacement Surgery

Computer-Assisted Shoulder Replacement Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes a robotic arm controlled by a skilled orthopedic surgeon. The robotic system assists in both the planning and execution of the surgery, enabling a high degree of precision. This process involves creating a detailed 3D model of the patient’s shoulder, allowing the surgeon to tailor the procedure to the patient’s unique anatomy.

Benefits of Computer-assisted Shoulder Replacement Surgery

  • Enhanced Precision: The computerized shoulder replacement preoperative planningsystem and patient specific guides allows for highly accurate cuts and implant positioning, which can improve the longevity and functionality of the shoulder replacement.
  • Personalized Approach: The 3D model enables surgeons to customize the procedure, resulting in a better fit and alignment of the shoulder implant.
  • Minimally Invasive: Computer assistance often leads to smaller incisions, less blood loss, and reduced trauma to surrounding tissues.
  • Faster Recovery: Patients typically experience quicker recovery times and less post-operative pain compared to traditional shoulder replacement surgery.
  • Improved Outcomes: The precision and customization of the computer-assisted approach lead to better overall outcomes, including greater range of motion and improved shoulder function.


  • Preoperative Planning: A detailed 3D model of the patient’s shoulder is created using advanced imaging technology. This model aids in precise surgical planning.
  • Surgical Execution: During the surgery, the robotic system assists the surgeon in making accurate cuts and positioning the implant with high precision.
  • Postoperative Care: Following surgery, patients receive comprehensive care, including physical therapy and regular follow-ups to ensure a smooth recovery.

Who is an Ideal Candidate?

Computer- Assisted Shoulder Replacement Surgery is suitable for patients suffering from severe shoulder pain and immobility due to conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or post-traumatic arthritis. Ideal candidates are those who have not found relief from conservative treatments like medication, physical therapy, or injections.

Risks and Considerations

As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks involved, including infection, blood clots, and complications related to anesthesia. However, the precision of robotic technology can reduce some of these risks. Patients must discuss their medical history and any concerns with their surgeon to determine the best course of action.
