In the News: Dr. Brian Johnson on Reverse Total Shoulder Surgery
Patients with rotator cuff diseases and arthritis can’t receive standard total shoulder replacements. Neither can patients with difficult fractures, glenoid bone stock problems or total shoulder replacements that need revisions. Reverse total shoulder surgery can help.
Dr. Brian Johnson, an orthopaedic surgeon at CNOS specializing in shoulder care, has done more than 500 of these replacements in the last nine years. Midwest Medical Magazine talked with Dr. Johnson about how this treatment can help patients when standard shoulder replacements aren't enough.
