Then a friend saw an article about reverse total shoulder replacement and Knight decided to see if the procedure could help him. He turned out to be a prime candidate.

"Patients with a failed rotator cuff develop shoulder arthritis caused by cartilage rubbing on bone," Dr. Zanotti explains. "Many times, their pain and weakness get to the point where they can't lift their arms at all. These patients typically get cortisone injections, take pain medications for years and have been told, 'That's the way you've got to live.' Not anymore. Reverse total shoulder replacement allows us to fix shoulders like these, so patients' pain is relieved and they can lift their arms again."

"The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint; the rounded portion of the upper arm is the ball and a shallow, dish-shaped structure attached to the shoulder blade is the socket," Dr. Zanotti explains. "A reverse total shoulder replacement reverses the ball and socket -- that is, the ball portion of the replacement joint is attached to the shoulder blade and the cup, or socket, is attached to th
