Shoulder Revision

When a shoulder surgery doesn’t result in adequate symptom relief, this is referred to as a failed shoulder surgery. Shoulder revision surgery can amend the outcomes of the original surgery.

Shoulder surgery can fail for the following reasons:

  • Stiffness in the shoulder joint
  • Instability in the shoulder
  • Pain with or without movement
  • Weakness in the arm or shoulder
  • Failure to heal
  • Damage due to infection at the surgery site
  • Any shoulder surgery can fail

Most surgeries do not fail and do not require additional procedures to repair complications or failures. However, shoulder revision is available in the case that your surgery does fail. Any type of shoulder surgery can fail, including:



If you undergo a shoulder surgery that does not result in optimal healing or involves complications, shoulder revision and repair can help you achieve better results.

In shoulder revision, your orthopedic surgeon will go onto the shoulder joint to perform additional measures that will help your shoulder fully heal. These may include removing scar tissue, removing damaged or infected tissue, removing bone spurs, repositioning structures within the shoulder, adjusting prosthetic appliances that may have slipped out of place, or replacing prosthetics that may have caused an allergic reaction with prosthetic appliances of a different makeup.
