Reverse Shoulder Replacement

Reverse Shoulder Replacement

Reverse Shoulder Replacement is an advanced surgical procedure aimed at restoring shoulder function and relieving pain in patients with complex shoulder conditions. This innovative surgery is particularly beneficial for those who have experienced severe shoulder arthritis coupled with irreparable rotator cuff tears, or for individuals who have had previous unsuccessful shoulder surgeries. Dr. Biles and his team use state-of-the-art techniques and prosthetics to ensure that patients achieve the best possible outcomes, enhancing their mobility and quality of life.

What Is a Reverse Shoulder Replacement?

Reverse Shoulder Replacement, unlike traditional shoulder replacement, involves swapping the positions of the ball and socket in the shoulder joint. This means the ball component is attached to the shoulder blade (scapula) and the socket is placed on the upper part of the arm bone (humerus). This design provides increased stability and allows the deltoid muscle, rather than the damaged rotator cuff, to power and move the arm.

This procedure is recommended for individuals with complex shoulder issues who are not candidates for traditional shoulder replacement. Our comprehensive approach includes a detailed pre-operative evaluation, customized surgical planning, and a personalized rehabilitation program to ensure a successful recovery.
