A condition of the shoulder that involves both a massive rotator cuff tear
and debilitating arthritis with loss of cartilage.
- The rotator cuff muscles may be torn due to an injury (fall, accident),
aging, overuse (sport or occupational) or severe arthritis.
- Rotator Cuff tears that go untreated can also lead to arthritis as the
lack of muscular support allows the bones to rub against each other.
- Severe pain with rotation and rising of the arm
A Reversed Total Joint Replacement
- Non repairable massive rotator cuff tear arthropathy.
- When pain and immobility prevent even minimal activities of daily living
- Failed previous shoulder surgery or replacement.
Advancements in technology continue to revolutionize medicine. Surgery is now
more precise and more specialized than ever before resulting in streamlined
procedures, improved outcomes, and shorter recovery time.
Shoulder surgery represents just this kind of specialization. Thanks to a new
prosthesis and new surgical techniques, shoulder surgery has become a boon to
patients by dramatically reducing pain and discomfort and returning substantial
movement to the shoulder.
Over 14 million people a year visit doctors for shoulder problems. In the
last decade, shoulder surgery has come a long way and now surgeons are able to
treat conditions that were considered inoperable not so very long ago.
