Case description

In this video Dr. Richard Hawkins with the Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas discusses reverse total shoulder arthroplasty and the steps to get it right. The complications rate is relatively high during his surgery. This is the reason why every single patient should be carefully diagnosed first. Each alternative form of treatment should be carefully evaluated. The procedure is to replace the shoulder joint with an artificial device. Damaged bone is removed and new shoulder joint is created. The recovery is pretty quick. The video contains information about surgical instruments used during this procedure and operation itself. ©Hawkins Foundation 2012
