Shoulder pain is something that prevents you from being active. Right from carrying a bag to even compromising with the most comfortable sleeping position, shoulder pain can be annoying as well as be limiting.
The shoulder pain can be caused due to many external as well as internal factors.
Rotator cuffs within the shoulder are important for its functioning, when the cuff is torn due to a sudden fall, lifting weights, or due to aging.
How can you repair the rotator cuff?
That is where you have to know about reverse shoulder replacement surgery.
Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery
This surgery is done for people who have shoulder arthritis or rotator cuff tear. The reverse shoulder replacement surgery is developed when the traditional surgical options could not work on treating shoulder arthritis and rotator cuff tear. Due to the absence of a rotator cuff in the traditional surgery, the implants move abnormally.
In the reverse shoulder replacements, the socket and ball joint are swapped. The ball is placed on the shoulder blade and the socket is placed on the arm bone.
Reverse shoulder replacement is an ideal option in case of complicated shoulder problems related to the rotator cuff because cuffs rely on different muscles to move the arm.
The ideal candidates for this surgery would be somebody who has:
An irreparable torn off rotator cuff
- Cuff tear arthropathy
- Severe shoulder pain
- Chronic shoulder dislocation
- Complex fracture of shoulder joint
- Tumor of shoulder joint
- Failed previous medications and surgeries
Some of the conditions of the patient that involves the surgeon’s decision to perform reverse shoulder replacement surgery include the functioning of deltoid muscle, the age of the patient, and the functional demands of the patients.
If you are planning to go for having this procedure then you can discuss it with an experienced orthopedic surgeon at Medisys hospital.
