may have about your upcoming total shoulder replacement. It includes
information on what the surgery involves, how to prepare yourself for the surgery,
what to expect in the days following the surgery, how to prepare your home for
when you are discharged from the hospital, and tips that will hopefully make this
experience as positive and stress-free as possible.

Please read this guide thoroughly and write down any questions you may have on
the “My Notes” page at the end of this booklet. Bring this booklet with you on the
day of your surgery and for follow-up visits.
