Ream and run - a great rehab effort and postoperative range of motion

Here are the preoperative images of a 50 year old athletic man who presented for a ream and run procedure for glenohumeral arthritis of his left shoulder

His 1.5 year postoperative films show a thin, smooth stemmed impaction grafted standard length humeral component with good centering in the conservatively reamed glenoid. 

He recently sent us these photos of the range of motion for his operated left shoulder

This range is the result of his extraordinary dedication to his rehabilitation. He is now working on the slight limitation in abduction using the sideways lean (see this link).
