Surena Namdari, MD, from The Rothman Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, performs a reverse total shoulder arthroplasty on a 64-year-old, right hand-dominant male patient in a procedure broadcast live from ICJR’s 7th Annual Shoulder Course.
The patient had a 5-year history of left shoulder pain and weakness that had been well-managed with injections and physical therapy. He then experienced a lifting injury that left him with worse pain and the inability to raise his left arm. He failed to regain overhead elevation following 12 weeks of injections and physical therapy.
