Advances in repair of the shoulder’s ball-and-socket joint are making partial joint replacement rather than total joint replacement a more viable option for a growing number of patients, especially those who are more active and athletic, according to noted hand and upper limbs specialist Alejandro Badia MD, founder and chief medical officer of the Florida-based Badia Hand to Shoulder Center and OrthoNOW®.
Until now, total joint replacement has been the gold standard for treating shoulder-joint problems that have not responded to conservative therapies.

These advanced tools allow us as surgeons to restore the biomechanics of the shoulder with minimally invasive, bone-sparing approaches on an outpatient basis,” says Dr. Badia.”
