In 2010 and 2011, an estimated 67,000 to 76,000 shoulder replacement procedures were performed, comprising 5% to 6% of all joint replacement procedures. At the same time, an estimated 19,000 to 25,000 other joint replacement procedures were performed. This small group, which includes fingers, toes, wrist, ankle, and spine replacements, comprise less than 2% of all joint replacement procedures. As with hip and knee replacements, a majority of other joint replacement procedures occurred in females. (Reference Table 4.9 PDF CSV)
