With Dr Will Bryceson, Cairns Base Hospital. BioRSA Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement using the Ascend Flex prosthesis (Wright Medical) for a patient with a type C glenoid and severe arthritis.
There has been a significant change in shoulder surgery in the last ten years. Advanced techniques have been developed that allow almost all operations to be performed as arthroscopic (keyhole surgery) operations. Joint replacement surgery and most fracture repairs are still performed as open surgery.
