A total shoulder replacement involves removing the ball and the socket that are worn out because of arthritis or injury, and then replacing them with a metal ball and a plastic socket. This operation has become increasingly more popular over the last decade in the United States, as more patients suffer from arthritis and the technology and surgical techniques for shoulder replacement have improved significantly. Dr. Bushnell is an expert at shoulder replacement surgery, and has performed both minimally-invasive total shoulder replacement as well as outpatient total shoulder replacement surgeries. He has lectured at the state, national, and international level about shoulder replacement surgery and has published articles about shoulder arthritis and replacement in the medical literature.
