Shoulder Surgery - Exactech GPS Guided



Exactech GPS Guided Shoulder Surgery pairs surgeon expertise with an advanced computer system to perform the patient’s shoulder surgery with a goal of improved accuracy and precision.

The ExactechGPS Shoulder Application’s preoperative planning tool is designed to help surgeons understand their patient’s anatomy prior to surgery and plan the surgery through a virtual simulation.

Surgeons can then execute their plan in real time during the surgery based on a 3-D anatomical model of the patient’s shoulder, making adjustments as needed. This unique technology gives greater visibility to the shoulder anatomy, allowing for more consistent and accurate implant placement

How Does Guided Personalized Surgery Work?


There are plenty of options when it comes to shoulder replacement implants, but nothing compares to feeling confident with a shoulder implant that is designed to fit you.

The Equinoxe Shoulder System has demonstrated excellent biomechanics and outcomes in its more than 10 years of use, as proven by more than 80 peer-reviewed clinical studies.

The Exactech Shoulder System

It is widely recognized that quality design and materials contribute to longevity and function when it comes to total joint implants.

The platform system allows conversion of a primary or fractures shoulder replacement to reverse without the need to remove the already well-fixed stem.

The high-quality implants are designed to:

• Help match each individual patient’s
bone structure
• Preserve a patient’s natural anatomy
• Work in a variety of procedures
• Address unique clinical challenges

Exactech GPS Guided Shoulder Surgery



Exactech GPS Guided Shoulder Surgery is the latest
advancement in technology that provides surgeons with
real-time visual guidance in total shoulder surgery. This advanced
the platform combines surgeon expertise with a computer
system to perform your shoulder surgery with a goal of
advanced accuracy and precision, allowing for simple
adjustments, minimally invasive techniques, and implant
alignment personalized to your unique anatomy.

Shoulder Replacement


We don’t have to tell you how debilitating joint pain can be, not to mention how it can make you feel.

The shoulder joint is similar to a ball-and-socket joint but more closely resembles a golf ball on a tee. The rotator cuff provides the stability – keeping the golf ball on the tee. Unfortunately, a healthy shoulder can sometimes be damaged by diseases, such as arthritis, or injury. This can result in severe pain, pseudoparalysis (false paralysis) and muscle weakness.

Shoulder replacement surgery replaces the damaged part of your shoulder to recreate the natural contours of the bones in a healthy shoulder.



Primary Shoulder Replacement
Shoulder replacement surgery replaces the
damaged part of your shoulder to mimic the
natural contours of the bones in a healthy

Sometimes, only the ball is replaced (hemiarthroplasty),
while other times, both the ball and socket are replaced (total
shoulder arthroplasty). The ball is metal and the socket is


During surgery, an incision is made in the front of the shoulder.
Once your surgeon exposes your shoulder joint, the surgeon
will remove the damaged bone and cartilage. The head of the
humerus is then removed and a metal stem is placed into the
humeral canal. This provides a stabilizing anchor for the head.

Reverse Shoulder Replacement
If you have an irreparable rotator cuff tear and
arthritis, your surgeon may opt to perform a
reverse shoulder replacement.

A rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that
surround the shoulder in order to keep the humerus centered
while performing shoulder-related tasks such as lifting the
arm. When the rotator cuff tears, the muscles lose their ability
to keep the humerus centered on the glenoid, causing your
humerus to move upward and out of the socket. This instability,
combined with arthritis or a previous shoulder injury, can
cause severe pain and loss of function.

In this procedure, the anatomy of the shoulder is reversed
by attaching a metal ball (glenosphere) to the glenoid and
the plastic socket (humeral liner) to the upper humerus. A
reverse shoulder replacement empowers your deltoid to
become the main functioning muscle in the absence of a
healthy rotator cuff.
