shoulder fusion

Does anybody know anything about shoulder fusion/arthrodesis?

Hi Danny,

Arthrodesis is an operation, in which fusion is achieved between the bones forming the joint so as to eliminate any motion at the joint. An arthrodesis is used most often for a painful, stiff joint. It is also performed for grossly unstable joints.
