Every procedure is different, so recovery times vary. Typically, you will need to stay in the hospital or surgery center for a day or two. Some can go home the same day of their surgery. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medication to minimize your discomfort during the recovery period. Typically, you will need to wear a sling, at least part-time, for several weeks.
Shoulder replacement surgery requires physical therapy afterward. Physical therapy helps restore your strength and stability, allowing you to gradually increase your activity level and progressively return to your routine.
At Town Center Orthopaedic Associates, the surgeons and physical therapists work together to ensure each patient achieves a successful recovery after shoulder replacement surgery.
