A New Option for Shoulder Repair

-A +A

For some patients who have severe rotator cuff damage from osteoarthritis, reverse shoulder replacement can help reduce pain and restore range of motion in the shoulder joint.

Reverse shoulder replacement surgery is an alternative to traditional shoulder replacement surgery. The unique implant design changes the mechanics of the shoulder, as the ball and socket device that is used for traditional repair is reversed. 

The procedure can help to relieve intense pain that can stop people in their tracks when performing routine tasks, such as cleaning, dressing, and combing hair.
