How long will it take for deltoid muscle to strenghten after total shoulder replacement?

Time can vary

Shoulder_joint
The recovery time for deltoid function is less important for total shoulder replacement as strength and function relies more on the rotator cuff. It's recovery however in reverse total shoulder replacement is an important factor in function afterwards. Deltoid strength usually requires anywhere between 3-12 months to improve. The better your strength before surgery the quicker the recovery.

What alternatives are there for shoulder replacement?

Conservative Rx

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Assuming one has arthritis in the shoulder, the options are: Surgical (replacement) or non-surgical. The non-surgical treatments include antiinflammatory medications, steroid injections, pain medications, therapy and other alternative treatments such as chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, etc. Steroids and therapy tend to be the primary traditional non-operative treatments.

How complicated is shoulder replacement?

Shoulder replacement

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Total shoulder replacement is a technically demanding procedure. Results have been shown to be vastly better when performed by a surgeon who performs the procedure on a regular basis. In surveys done by AAOS, the avg number of shoulder replacements done per year is 3. Best to see a shoulder surgeon who performs this upwards of 3 per month or more.

Dr. Allen P. Lu answered:

What should I expect for a partial shoulder replacement?

Rehabilitation/Rest

Weight_training
In order to perform a partial shoulder replacement, one of the rotator cuff tendons are cut, then reattached. Because of this, the tendon needs time to heal. A period of rest if necessary to protect this healing before starting rehabilitation. A partial replacement lasts considerably longer overall, but has the drawback of residual pain from not replacing the socket side of the joint.

What is the most common muscle disorder?

Sprains

Muscular_dystrophy
Sprains/strains is the most common muscle problem. If you are looking specifically for a disease, then muscular dystrophy would be my top choice. Depending on how you want to classify fibromyalgia, it could rank as the top disease.

What should be anticipated postop for a partial shoulder replacement?

Why a partial?

Head
A partial or hemi-arthroplasty is a good option for a proximal humerus fracture or for a young person with avascular/osteo necrosis of the humeral head. For arthritis of the glenohumeral joint (shoulder), a total shoulder arthroplasty is the best option. Pain relief after a hemi-arthroplasty lasts about 5 years. Both hemi & total arthroplasties require 6 weeks of restricted motion and therapy.
