    I'm close to having a shoulder replacement done. The cortisone injections working only a few weeks then gradually becoming less effective. My specialist does 800 hips a year and has people back at work in 30 days average, some in 14 days. He says no more pain from day one. Get your life back. Get to sleep all night long again. Stop suffering. Warning though- take rehab seriously and obey physical therapy instructions to the letter! That is the only way to get the most from replacement surgeries. Otherwise the joint doesn't heal properly around the replacement.
