Features & Benefits

  • Stemless design 

    • Designed to provide rigid metaphyseal fixation, despite the absence of a traditional stemmed component 
    • Designed to achieve peripheral fixation where the bone quality and density has been demonstrated to be superior to central bone.1,2
  • Anatomically-designed humeral head sizes and a broad range of peripherally-fixated Anchor Plate components 

    • Natural epiphyseal structure, or best-fit circle reconstruction, can be created to reestablish the patient’s inclination, offset and retroversion.
    • Designed to enhance soft tissue balancing and stability4
  • Simplified surgical procedure and streamlined instrumentation 

    • Designed to potentially improve operating room efficiency through its simplified surgical procedure

    - 73% fewer surgical steps3
    - 56% fewer instrument passes compared to a traditional stemmed shoulder prosthesis3

  • Combination of a bone-conserving device with streamlined instrumentation

    • Designed to be bone-preserving, removing an average of 88% less bone than a traditional stemmed device5
    • The use of a bone-conserving device, in concert with streamlined instrumentation, combines to potentially increase surgical efficiency and reduce blood loss on a primary procedure.
