Reverse total shoulder
Thursday, May 21, 2015
The reverse total shoulder technique is a new procedure which actually improves upon the natural anatomy of the human body. Here, Orthopedics & Sports Medicine BayCare Clinic orthopedic surgeon Craig L. Olson, MD, explains how the surgery is similar to a mechanical problem.
Approaching the issue with an engineer’s eye, Dr. Olson tells how rotator cuff issues often result in shoulder replacement surgery, and why the reverse total shoulder replacement surgery is the preferred procedure.
Craig L. Olson, MD, received his medical degree from Rush Medical College in Chicago and completed two orthopaedic surgery residencies, the first at Shriners Hospital for Children, and the second at Rush-Presbyterian St. Luke's Medical Center. Dr. Olson is also fellowship trained in shoulder and sports medicine. Learn more about him here.
