About Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement

What is it and how is it performed?

Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement Overview

A reverse total shoulder replacement is a surgical treatment option for a movement-related shoulder arthritis pain. Board-certified and Fellowship-Trained Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates’ (CONA) shoulder specialists are reverse total shoulder replacement experts.

How is reverse total shoulder replacement performed?

Total shoulder replacement is performed on an inpatient (1-3 night hospital stay) basis. General anesthesia is used to make sure the patient is completely asleep and can feel no pain or discomfort. The procedure is the same thing as a total shoulder replacement except artificial joint component positions are swapped. The shoulder’s head is put in the socket and the socket is put on the head. Shoulder movement is limited after the procedure but the patient experiences dramatic pain relief.

What does reverse total shoulder replacement treat?

Reverse total shoulder replacement treats severe shoulder arthritis that causes movement-related pain.

These are the best group of doctors that myself & my family have ever been treated by in this field of medicine. They listen to how you feel instead of telling you how you feel. Thank you all for your caring & kindness.
