TSR, Reverse TSR

Severe shoulder conditions with persistent symptoms that have not responded to conservative treatments may benefit from total shoulder replacement surgery.  Shoulder replacement surgery replaces the damaged joint with an artificial one that allows patients to enjoy painless motion and resume their regular activities.

Shoulder replacement surgery is often performed to treat painful conditions such as:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Osteonecrosis

Shoulder replacement surgery takes about one to two hours to perform and is usually done under general anesthesia in addition to a regional nerve block.

Recovery from TSR

Patients typically stay in the hospital for one to three days and will need physical therapy in order to restore motion and function to the joint after surgery.  Most patients are able to return to all of their regular activities of daily living in 2-3 months, while more active sports participation takes about 5 months.

The latest technological advance in shoulder replacement surgery is the reverse ball and socket prosthesis. This prosthetic device can be used in patients with an irreparable rotator cuff coupled with shoulder arthritis. While traditional shoulder replacement surgery failed to effectively treat this disorder in the past, the reverse shoulder has demonstrated excellent results in pain relief and the restoration of shoulder motion and functionality. Our surgeons are specially trained in this latest shoulder replacement treatment.
