Discover the unique benefits of ream and run shoulder surgery, a partial shoulder replacement option that allows active individuals to regain function and stability without the risk of glenoid component loosening.
Shoulder arthroplasty surgeries can be complex due to large bone spurs (also known as osteophytes), bone loss, severe stiffness, and soft tissue problems. Many patients have also had surgeries in the past that can also make the procedure more challenging and higher risk for complications. On the other hand, in certain cases painful shoulder arthritis can be straightforward for an experienced surgeon to reconstruct in the operating room. Regardless of the situation, whether straightforward or complex, shoulder surgeons want to be as accurate, consistent, and cost-conscious as possible while focusing on the most important thing: helping our patients achieve their best.
Reverse shoulder arthroplasty is a special type of shoulder replacement that can be used to treat complex shoulder problems. Reverse shoulder replacements, also called reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA), can also be used in other situations besides cuff tear arthropathy.
