Last month I wrote an article describing how shoulder replacement is an option for dealing with chronic shoulder pain. However, this procedure is not for everyone. If you have an irrepairable rotator cuff tear, then conventional shoulder replacement surgery will not provide the results that you hope for.
Reversing the solution
By reversing the placement of the ball and socket, the deltoid muscles are able to provide the action needed to allow shoulder mobility without compromising shoulder stability.
Reverse shoulder replacement has been done in Europe for many years, but has only become an option for patients in the U.S. since 2004.
