Highly specialized shoulder procedures


Orthopedic shoulder specialists on the medical staff can provide help for people who experience problems with a previously replaced shoulder that may require joint revision surgery. Additionally, patients with a complex shoulder joint from congenital defects and other disorders require the skill set of surgeons who frequently see these conditions in patients.

A reverse shoulder replacement is for patients who have severe shoulder arthritis with a rotator cuff tear that is not repairable. This procedure allows patients to regain full functionality of the shoulder, pain relief and increased mobility that is not possible through a standard shoulder replacement.
