Shoulder Replacement

Dr. Gupta is one of the best orthopedic specialists in India in the field of upper extremity. Currently with the Max Healthcare, he has been serving diligently for more than 20 years and has conducted more than 18000 surgeries. Expressing his views about shoulder joint replacement Dr Gupta says, “It is generally taken up as a procedure to relieve the extremely painful condition of the shoulder and restore the lost mobility of the shoulder joint. Normal activities can be picked up after your shoulder joint is replaced by an artificial joint and you can g back to sports or any other activity that you used to perform before your shoulder joint was damaged.”

Known for accurate prognosis and painless treatment modalities Dr. Gupta very calmly drawls, “We only adopt shoulder joint replacement when we have thoroughly evaluated and examined the facts and history of the condition and are assured that it would be the optimum method. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, severely broken bones in the shoulder and torn rotator cuff are more likely to be relieved by replacement surgery.”

If your arm is not lifting beyond 90 degrees, you have weakness in your shoulder muscles, immense pain even during rest hours in spite of being conservatively treated by your orthopedics it is a sign that you might have to undergo a replacement surgery to fence the deterioration of your shoulder joints.”

Pondering over the effectiveness of the surgery he stresses, “There are no irreparable complications involved with the shoulder replacement technique. Success ratio is directly dependent on the skill and affluence of the surgeon. Total, partial or reverse are the three kinds of replacement techniques that are adopted as per the severity of the patient’s condition which are only concluded after a detailed and in depth analysis. Physical therapy exercises is one of the most essential tool pre and post surgery to enhance the healing.”

Germany and USA have been a witness to these deft hands and passionate approach during Dr. Gupta’s further research of newer modality techniques in the two respective countries.
Known as an icon among his peers and interns, his lectures and papers are much awaited for at National and International seminars for upper extremity.
