A new surgical technique performed by the surgeons at Orthopedic Associates of Port Huron gives new hope to patients by helping them accomplish daily activities without pain. The new technique is called reverse shoulder replacement surgery, and it is improving lives.
Our doctors will always consider conservative, nonsurgical methods of treatment first. However, for some patients who have severe rotator cuff damage and osteoarthritis, reverse shoulder replacement at Orthopedic Associates of Port Huron can help reduce pain and restore mobility in a person’s shoulder.
“Reverse shoulder replacement surgery is a crucial treatment option for patients with irreparable rotator cuff tears with osteoarthritis," explains Dr. Todd Murphy, orthopedic surgeon at Orthopedic Associates of Port Huron. “The unique implant design changes the mechanics of the shoulder, resulting in pain relief and improved function."
Reverse shoulder replacement surgery can help relieve intense pain that may prevent people from performing routine tasks such as cleaning, dressing, and combing their hair.
