Reverse Shoulder

Reverse Shoulder

The main distinction between a regular shoulder replacement and a reverse operation is that the ball and socket components of the shoulder joint are switched sides during the reverse procedure. Their normal position is thus turned around.

A reverse shoulder replacement reverses the typical ball-and-socket arrangement. The shoulder blade is affixed with an artificial ball. On the top of the arm bone is a synthetic socket. Usually, the big deltoid muscle that surrounds the shoulder may move the arm. An upper arm bone’s rounded head is removed during a reverse total shoulder replacement. He or she inserts a plastic socket to the remaining bone with screws and specific tools. Additionally, the surgeon takes a piece of the shoulder blade’s socket out. Then a metal ball is put in its place.
