Becker’s Orthopedic Review has published an interview with Dr. Romeo about Minimally-Invasive Total Shoulder Replacement.
“I was motivated by the fact that one of the most challenging problem with regards to return to function after a shoulder replacement has been how well the rotator cuff tendon heals after surgery. To perform a shoulder replacement in the standard fashion, we go through the front of the shoulder and the subscapularis. Any time you cut the tendon or move it out of the way, up to 20 percent of patients will have a change in function because the muscle undergoes permanent atrophy.”
Dr.Romeo’s article, entitled “Outcomes of Arthroscopic and Open Surgical Repair of Isolated Subscapularis Tendon Tears”, has been published in the Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery.
