Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty

Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty Overview
  • The shoulder has a rotator cuff which is made of a group of muscles or tendons to hold the shoulder joint and helps in movement of your arm and shoulder.
  • If the rotator cuff causes difficulty in movement, weakness or pain, the shoulders will get damaged and tendons get repaired.
  • When the tendons are severely damaged, a surgery called reverse shoulder replacement or reverse shoulder arthroplasty is performed where ‘Arthro’ refers to ‘joint’ and ‘plasty’ refers to ‘mold surgically’.
  • The top of the arm bone exactly fits into a socket which is on the shoulder blade. Generally, the surgeon removes the top of the arm bone to insert a metal stem with a ball at the end and a plastic lining is also attached to the socket for a flexible movement for a typical knee replacement.
  • But in the reverse shoulder arthroplasty, the normal ball-and-socket structure is reversed. An artificial ball is attached to the shoulder blade and an artificial socket is also attached to the top of the arm bone with the help of screws and special tools.
