Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Shoulder Joint Anatomy and Functions

    The shoulder joint, which is part of the shoulder complex, is one of the most important anatomical points in humans – it connects the upper limb to the trunk, and thanks to its ball-and-socket structure, it provides the widest range of motion of all joints in the body. It consists of the head of the humerus bone and the glenoid cavity. The entire structure is surrounded by ligaments, tendons, and muscles, which are responsible for proper shoulder stabilization, appropriate muscle tension, and the fluidity of all movements.

  • Indications for surgery

    Shoulder arthroplasty is indicated for irreversible joint damage that does not respond to conservative treatment methods. Damage to the shoulder joint can be classified clinically as acute or progressive. Acute damage occurs due to multi-fragment fractures resulting from falls from heights or vehicular accidents. In such cases, the destruction of the humeral head is so extensive that the only method to restore active range of motion to the upper limb is through arthroplasty.

    Acute shoulder injuries are also relatively common among athletes – studies show that the shoulder joint is one of the most susceptible areas to injuries. Pathological changes in the shoulder occur due to various medical conditions that gradually limit mobility, cause severe pain, and lead to the formation of muscle contractures. In some cases, rehabilitation methods may not be effective, predisposing to surgery. Indications for surgery include:

    • Avascular necrosis of the humeral head,
    • Advanced degenerative changes of the humerus,
    • Changes resulting from rotator cuff damage,
    • Progressive instability of the joint,
    • Rheumatoid arthritis,
    • Tumor.

  • The possibilities of shoulder endoprosthesis surgery in our clinic.

    Shoulder joint endoprosthesis, depending on the degree of joint damage and specific structures involved, can take the form of partial, total, or reverse replacement. The key to achieving the desired outcomes of the procedure lies in the accurate restoration of anatomical structures and proper balance of soft tissues.

    • Total shoulder endoprosthesis is used for extensive damage to the shoulder complex. It consists of an artificial glenoid component and the head of the humerus bone.
    • Partial shoulder endoprosthesis is employed when only the head of the humerus bone is damaged. It replaces the damaged part with a metal implant shaped like a sphere, which is attached to the humerus bone and secured to the glenoid component.
    • Reverse shoulder endoprosthesis gets its name from an innovative surgical approach where the head of the humerus bone is replaced with the glenoid component of the endoprosthesis, and vice versa. This reversal of components shifts the center of rotation of the joints, allowing for the restoration of shoulder movements using unaffected muscles (mainly the deltoid muscle). This method is particularly effective in advanced degenerative conditions when the articular surfaces of the humeral head and glenoid are damaged, while the rotator cuff tendons remain intact.

    The choice of the shoulder joint endoprosthesis depends primarily on the type and extent of damage to the joint. The Shoulder Endoprosthesis Surgery in Warsaw at Medi Horizon Clinic is performed by experienced specialists in the field of orthopedics. Based on clinical assessment and individual patient needs, they conduct the operation using the best implantation methods.

  • Diagnostic tests for shoulder endoprosthesis surgery in Poland.

    Medi Horizon Clinic prioritizes the safety of its patients, therefore, before the procedure, each patient is directed to a medical consultation, during which a specialist conducts an interview and orders imaging tests (X-rays, ultrasound, or magnetic resonance imaging). All these actions aim to thoroughly understand the problem and detect any potential contraindications to surgery.

    Orthopedist Dr. Andrzej Suwara, during the consultation, discusses the possibilities of shoulder endoprosthesis surgery and the expected outcomes. Then the patient is referred to a consultation with an anesthesiologist, who orders a set of laboratory tests . During each visit, you will get answers to your questions. Necessary qualifying tests can be comprehensively performed at our clinic.


  • What does the procedure of shoulder joint endoprosthesis replacement look like?

    The surgery involves replacing the poorly functioning shoulder joint with a shoulder endoprosthesis and restoring the appropriate anatomical structures. The exact methodology of the procedure depends on the nature of the joint damage – it may vary slightly for each patient. All methods of shoulder endoprosthesis implantation at Medi Horizon Clinic are based on the use of modern and proven orthopedic implants. They have appropriate international certificates and attestations, making them fully safe. The surgery typically lasts from 2 to 3 hours. If the surgeon determines that the operation was successful, the patient can leave the clinic the next day.

  • How does the recovery process look like and how long does it take after the surgery?

    It’s an individual matter – for each patient, the time to return to functionality may vary. This is mainly influenced by their motivation, the rehabilitation process, and overall health condition. After the surgery, the joint is immobilized with a special brace to provide optimal conditions for tendon regeneration and healing. During this time, the patient begins exercises under the supervision of a physiotherapist. The initial goal of physiotherapy is to reduce postoperative tissue swelling and alleviate pain. Physiotherapy techniques such as local cryotherapy and laser therapy are applied. Gradually, exercises are introduced to improve joint mobility and strengthen muscles. From the physiotherapy perspective, scar therapy (after stitch removal and healing) is also crucial. Through proper mobilization techniques and massage, the physiotherapist can improve scar flexibility, blood flow, and appearance.

    Medi Horizon Clinic Warsaw collaborates with experienced physiotherapists specializing in postoperative rehabilitation. Rehabilitation after shoulder endoprosthesis surgery yields excellent results and is crucial for a faster return to full mobility.
