Advanced shoulder replacement for a serious shoulder fracture problem

  • Unhealed shoulder fracture is an uncommon problem. If it happens in younger people, operating and making the fracture heal is a logical solution. In people, a little older and those with severe muscle deficiency, the approach of making them heal does not work. In such cases, a special type of shoulder replacement called reverse shoulder replacement is done. This is what was done for this 60 year old lady with failed healing of fracture of the shoulder.
