How efficient is the shoulder replacement surgery?

The replacement usually lasts for 15 years on average.

A rough estimate is around 15 years, but we often see it last longer in some patients. It is difficult to predict how long each patient's shoulder replacement will last, specifically because the materials we use now are improved from those 7-8 years ago.
