Expert shoulder replacement surgery

In cases where the loss of motion and pain in an arthritic shoulder can no longer be controlled by non-surgical means, Mr Sinnerton is able to replace the damaged joint with an artificial one (prosthesis), made most commonly of metal and plastic, although he also uses the latest ceramic and pyrocarbon prostheses where necessary.  He favours the hemi-arthroplasty technique, solely replacing the ball part of the joint and leaving the socket intact.
