The shoulder is complex and sophisticated: The most mobile joint in the body, its ball-and-socket structure is also one of the most vulnerable to injuries. At Wisconsin River Orthopaedics, board-certified orthopaedic surgeons specialize in reverse total shoulder replacement, an advanced procedure to help patients regain the full range of motion they once had.

Reverse shoulder replacement may be an option for:

  • Individuals with a completely torn rotator cuff that is not repairable
  • Those whose issues haven’t improved after a traditional shoulder replacement procedure or rotator cuff surgery
  • Older adults with severe arthritis in the shoulder joint and who have limited – or no – mobility
