Anatomical Shoulder™ System
Traditionally, patients undergoing shoulder reconstruction faced two
postoperative tasks. First, they had to let the shoulder tissues
recover, as would be expected. Then they had to adapt to anatomical
changes imposed by a first- or second-generation implant that offered
nothing more than an approximate fit.
But now, with the modular Anatomical Shoulder System, the
shoulder implant can be tailored to each patient’s individual anatomy.
This allows a more advanced rehabilitation and an expanded radius of
movement while placing fewer demands on the soft tissues and on the
anchoring of the prosthesis.
The surgeon enjoys a simple operating technique that places fewer
limiting factors on the success of the surgery. The design of the
Anatomical Shoulder prosthesis truly sets the new standard for
third-generation shoulder arthroplasty.
