  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of local infiltration analgesia as compared to 48-hour interscalene block in treating pain after shoulder arthroplasty. The investigators hypothesize a reduced pain score and use of supplemental analgesic medication during the first three postoperative days using local infiltration analgesia.
