Unique reverse shoulder replacement surgery performed at KIMS

Kochi, Sep 20 (UNI) A unique reserve shoulder replacement surgery was successfully performed on a 49-year-old man today, whose right shoulder bone was affected by tumor.
A team of doctors at KIMS hospital, a leading private hospital in the capital city of Thiruvanthapuram, led by Dr Mohammed Nazeer, had successfully performed a unique reverse shoulder replacement surgery.
The investigations done at the KMS revealed that a tumor on the bone can spread to other parts of the body. Hence, these tumors had to be removed at the early stage itself or else, could be fatal, a release said here.
In such cases, usually the conventional joint replacement surgery or a bone fusion is done, but the latter may result in full immobility of the shoulder while conventional joint replace might result in partial or limited mobility of shoulder, it said.
The medical team, instead opted for a different procedure, where the socket of the shoulder was replaced by the ball of the shoulder bone and the ball of the shoulder bone with the socket of the shoulder.
The innovative shoulder replacement procedure allowed the patient to have full mobility of the hand and shoulder, it said, adding that after post surgery, the patient regained full health and returned to his workplace.
