Shoulder Joint Replacement

Book & Enquire

At Kingsbridge Private Hospital we provide shoulder replacement surgery to repair and replace a shoulder joint that has been damaged or worn away by arthritis or injury.

Your shoulder is a one of the main joints in your body that you use on a daily basis. Nearly all of the movement in your arms will use this area which means that pain can cause severe discomfort to you in your daily life. 

Having surgery to have a new shoulder joint will help improve the mobility of the arm and also help reduce pain. 


At a consultation at Kingsbridge Private Hospital in Belfast, you will meet with one of our expert consultants who will be able to advise you if non-surgical options such as physiotherapy or joint injections may be an alternative treatment. Depending on the severity of the injury surgery may be a better option for offering long term pain relief to the area. 

Each consultation is personalised to suit you but some of the areas that may be discussed include:

  • Information about a shoulder replacement
  • Alternatives to shoulder replacement
  • Preparing for a shoulder replacement
  • Information on what happens during a shoulder replacement
  • What to expect afterwards
  • Recovering from a shoulder replacement
  • Risks of surgery 

Our expert surgeons will be able to give you advice on which type of surgery you will need for your condition when you attend for an appointment.

Patient Testimonials

"Amazing 5-star hospital.  Have had other surgery here before on my back.
Yesterday's was a neck disc replacement operation.  I would highly recommend this hospital like a hotel manner. Thanks again guys." Mr Phillips,
"As hospitals go this one is pretty amazing! Had surgery with Mr Molloy at the end of October and have another one the end of this month. Mr Molloy is a gentleman who puts you at ease right away and ensured my last procedure went smoothly! From start to finish all the hospital staff go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. The facilities are brilliant with the rooms spacious and modern to recover in. Keep up the good work!" Ms Roulston,
"Can’t praise Kingsbridge Private Hospital enough!! I had an operation a couple of weeks ago and I was so well looked after. My surgeon Mr Rashid was fantastic, and the nursing staff was also fabulous. I found they communicated very well to each other, so everyone knew when my meds were due, my allergies etc. They were so kind, so lovely, constantly checked to see how I was i.e. my temperature etc. The food was fabulous and the catering staff very helpful having had an operation were very happy to accommodate ... Thank you to all!" Ms Cheong,
"Currently just back from recovery on the ward. I have just had ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee. What can I say? This place is brilliant. I arrived at 8.35am, taken to the ward at 8.45am (my admission time was 9am). Tended to by a lovely Nurse. Dr Roger Wilson spoke to me around 9.45am, in Theatre for 10am, recovery for 11.10am and now currently back on ward. These guys are awesome. From the consultant to anaesthetist to nurses to cater assistants. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to everyone at Kingsbridge for the service." Mr McNicholl,
"EXCELLENT - Had surgery today under the very caring Dr Stewart and her team. I cannot thank her enough for all she’s done for me over the past few months. Everything was explained to me in detail and all my care was considerate, professional and compassionate. Everyone I’ve met today has been beyond kind from Will the Anaesthetist, the Nurses and theatre staff, the catering staff - there has been no exception. Thank you all for taking care of me so well today - look forward to getting home tomorrow x" Mrs McAleavey,
