Procedures

Select a ProHealth hospital for compassionate surgical care when you need:

  • Rotator cuff repair – Fixes a torn or damaged tendon that attaches to your shoulder joint.
  • Shoulder arthroscopy – Uses a tiny camera and small surgical tools to diagnose and treat shoulder conditions.
  • Shoulder replacement – Removes and replaces damaged parts of your shoulder joint.

Reverse total shoulder replacement

If you have severe arthritis or a large rotator cuff tear, your orthopedic surgeon may recommend reverse total shoulder replacement.

With traditional shoulder replacement, you receive an artificial joint that works like your natural shoulder joint. A cup is placed on your shoulder socket, and a ball is attached to your upper arm.

In reverse shoulder replacement, the socket is placed on your upper arm and the ball is attached to your shoulder. This allows you to use different muscles to move your arm.
