The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint composed of 3 main components: your upper arm bone (Humerus), your shoulder blade (Scapula) as well as your collarbone (Clavicle). When your shoulder is healthy, these bones are covered with cartilage as well as a lubricating membrane that keeps movements smooth and friction too minimal. This gives your shoulder the great motion range that it's capable of when healthy.

Regardless the possible injuries and diseases which can affect the shoulder joint, prolonged uncontrollable pain is still the most probable indication  to consider shoulder replacement. Among the primary causes of this kind of pain is arthritis, which is really a wearing away of the shoulder cartilage after years of wear and tear. After the cartilage and membranes that maintain the shoulder joint smooth wear aside, the bone-on bone rubbing causes the pain, stiffness and tenderness in the joint, which could dramatically restrict mobility. Other causes for pain leading to the choice of shoulder replacement operation include several types of arthritis - like rheumatoid or post traumatic arthritis - and also the after effects of fractures (Breaks) or rotator cuff tears which can change the bio mechanics of the shoulder joint leading to arthritis.

Some individuals also consider shoulder operations after creating a situation called avascular necrosis, which limits supply of blood to the bone and triggers death of bone cells and arthritis.
