Reverse Shoulder Replacement


Shoulder Replacement is where the position of the ball and socket in the joint are switched and replaced with artificial parts. A prosthetic ball by the opting surgical method is attached at the shoulder blade, thereafter, the artificial socket is built at the top of the upper arm bone. Replacing the place of the ball and socket allows the shoulder to bypass the damaged tendons and muscles, and instead utilize the muscles at the top of the arm and shoulder. This helps to balance the shoulder joint and restore pain-free motion or function.
