Conventional total shoulder replacement may not be effective for individuals with severe rotator cuff injuries or a type of shoulder arthritis called cuff tear arthropathy. For these individuals, AOPI offers an alternative called reverse shoulder replacement. Using this technique, surgeons replace the shoulder's ball and socket components with artificial versions, just as they would in conventional replacement surgery, although, they position the new pieces differently. The new reversed replaced joint owes its functioning to the deltoid muscle. To learn more, visit AOPI today!
