Question:

What are shoulder replacements made of?

Answer:

A shoulder replacement contains both metal and plastic. The replacement begins with a metal ball like compound being attached to a stem that extends down the upper arm bone. A plastic socket is then designed to be placed over the actual surface of the glenoid, effectively completing the shoulder replacement.
