Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement
Top Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia Orthopedic Surgeons Specializing in Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement
During this procedure, the surgeon replaces a damaged shoulder joint with artificial components that reverse the structure of the shoulder. This procedure is most often used for patients who have had a failed total shoulder replacement. It is also helpful for patients who have had a complete tear of the rotator cuff, especially those whose injuries have led to an arthritic condition called cuff tear arthropathy.
