b'A Greater Range of Motion, a Wider Scope of ResearchMohit Gilotra, MD,assistant professor of orthopaedics, specializes inWeve made great progress over shoulder and elbow surgery. Hes also passionate about working withthe last two years on research other researchers to find ways to help torn rotator cuffs heal morerelated to reverse total shoulder effectively, return the full range of motion to patients shoulders throughreplacement surgery, says Dr. innovative surgical procedures, and advance the state of shoulder andGilotra. Approved by the FDA in elbow surgery.2004, reverse replacement is still a relatively new procedure. Unlike a standard shoulder replacement, in a reverse shoulder replacement the position of the ball and socket parts of the shoulder joint are reversed. For the right patient, the procedure has proven revolutionary, and within a few weeks, people who couldnt raise their arms at all can raise them above their heads. While complication rates have come down to less than five percent in recent years, patient range of motion after surgery is still all over the place, largely because it is difficult to properly size the prosthetics in advance, he explains. Sizing is not accurate because its the opposite of anatomic so there are no visual cues to getting it right.When sizing is not precise, muscle tension is thrown out of kilter. Now, largely because Dr. Gilotras research has led to a new ultrasound technique that helps to pinpoint the correct tension, that issue is about to Dr. Gilotras lab focuses on finding new innovative ways to repairchange. This technology is simple. rotator cuff injuries. Its not invasive. And its working, 8CONNECTING WITH QUALITY: A Renewed Focus on Value-Based Care'
