Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement

A reverse total shoulder replacement is an orthopaedic procedure used to maintain the shoulder joint for people who have arthritis of the shoulder AND an irreparable, retracted rotator cuff tear.

Reverse Shoulder Replacement Diagnostic Investigations

Candidates for a total reverse shoulder replacement will first have a plain x-ray and an MRI taken of their affected shoulder.

Reverse Shoulder Replacement Recovery

The reverse shoulder replacement recovery is reasonably fast after surgery. Most people are discharged home from hospital three to five days after their operation.
