In brief: I've put them in
While never having had a plate put in my shoulder (i am assuming that you are referring to a plate to treat a fracture or broken bone), I have put them in.
The are many different treatment options for shoulder fractures. If a plate is utilized well and for the right fracture, outcomes can be very good.
