The reverse shoulder replacement reverses the normal ball and socket relationship of the glenohumeral joint to create a more stable joint with a fixed fulcrum that includes a metal ball screwed into the shoulder socket and a plastic cup secured into the upper arm bone. The goal is to restore function to your shoulder. 

This is a surgical treatment option for patients experiencing:

  • An unrepariable rotator cuff

  • Failed shoulder replacement surgery

  • Cuff tear arthropathy

  • Shoulder fractures

  • Difficulty lifting an arm over the head or away from the side

  • A  shoulder joint tumor

  • Prior treatment failure
