Dr. Loeb on Time Warner Cable News: Total Shoulder Replacements on the Rise

Most people have heard of total knee or total hip replacement surgery. But Dr. Michael Loeb says total shoulder replacements are catching up to their counterparts.

"In 2006, about 35,000 to 40,000 shoulder replacements were done, and that number in 2011was 65,000 to 70,000, so it's going up," Dr. Loeb told Time Warner Cable News.

Patient, Pete Bishop, underwent total shoulder replacement after years of arthritis pain took its toll. He was sidelined from his great passion of rock climbing.

But one year after total shoulder replacement surgery at Texas Orthopedics, he's back doing what he loves most.
