 I personally thinks that your shoulder requires surgery but for the sure, you should consult your orthopedic surgeon, who will guide you better whether you need shoulder surgery or there may be other tretaments are best to treat your pain.

Did you ever get the team and run surgery? I hope you found some relief. I had the procedure 3 weeks ago, and everything is going extremely well. The stretches are sometimes hard, but I remind myself that it will be well worth it when I'm playing golf without shoulder pain this summer! Take care

I am a 24 year old male former athlete who has a history of recurrent dislocations. I was treated in 2008 with a bankart repair that last until 2012 when I dislocated my shoulder again. The surgeon that I saw performed a coracoid osteotomy known as a Latarjet procedure. The two screws that were inserted into my glenohumeral joint resulted in severe OA of the humerous as well as some changes to posterior and anterior glenoid. The coracoid osteotomy indicates no significant purchase into the glenoid cavity despite the screw insertion. As a result of this, I met with a surgeon in Toronto who told me that a Total Shoulder Replacement would be my only option at this point. I'm not sure if this surgeon has heard of the Ream and Run. I've done a generous amount of research and was wondering if I could get some opinions on the matter and maybe contact someone who had a Ream and Run procedure done that might have been in a similar situation to myself. Any opinions on the matter would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
