Total Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery


This surgery repairs a damaged shoulder joint. It reverses the position of the ball and the socket. This lets you move your arm with your deltoid muscle, instead of the muscles of the rotator cuff.


Total Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery

What is Total Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery?

To begin, you’re put to sleep. Or, you’re given medicine to make you feel relaxed and numb. We make an incision to reach your joint.

Humerus component
First, we modify the humerus. That’s the bone of your upper arm. We take off the head of the humerus, and make space in this bone for the implant. The implant’s stem slides into the bone’s center. We attach a cup to the top. This is the shoulder’s new socket.

Glenoid component
Next, we modify the glenoid. That’s the end of a bone called the “scapula.” We reshape the glenoid to make a stable surface. Then, we secure an implant to it. This is the shoulder’s new ball. Webring together the new ball and socket to form the new joint.

End of procedure
When it’s done, we close your incision and bandage your shoulder. You’re watched closely as you become awake and alert again. Follow your care plan for a safe recovery.
