Every year, thousands of total shoulder replacements are successfully done in the United States for patients with shoulder arthritis. This type of surgery, however, is not as beneficial for patients with large rotator cuff tears who have developed a complex type of shoulder arthritis called "cuff tear arthropathy." A reverse total shoulder replacement works better for people with rotator cuff tear arthropathy because it relies on different muscles to move the arm.

With the start of school, it is important to understand how to prevent and proactively manage your child's sports injuries. Returning athletes to play when they are injured or still healing may undermine longterm success in their sports.  Listen to Dr. Millett speak about youth sports injury prevention.

Shoulder arthritis is a common source of chronic shoulder pain and shoulder disability that affects more than 20% of the older population. There are 2 distinct joints in the shoulder area that can be affected by arthritis—the AC joint (acromioclavicular), which is where the collarbone (clavicle) meets the tip of the shoulder bone, and the glenohumeral joint where the upper arm bone (humerus) meets the shoulder blade (scapula).

The CAM procedure for young, active patients with osteoarthritis of the shoulder: “After surgery, my shoulder felt so much better. I spent months in rehab and stuck to the strict protocol that Dr. Millett put me on. This past month, I took my oldest daughter, Mara, and my family on a backpacking trip ... I was able to carry my heavy pack and get it on and off without pain. I have nothing holding me back and it is such a relief.” Read former patient John Gans’ story.
