REVERSE TOTAL SHOULDER REPLACEMENT
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
Difficulty lifting an arm over the head or away from the side
A shoulder joint tumor
Prior treatment failure
