The ExactechGPS® Shoulder Application
Have you ever experienced your vehicle when it is out of alignment — your car movement doesn’t feel right and your tires may produce uneven wear, requiring you to need a new set? Joints in the body work in a very similar fashion.
When patients require a total joint replacement, proper placement and alignment of the implant is critical to the implant’s overall longevity and function. ExactechGPS® Guided Personalized Surgery combines surgeon expertise with an advanced computer system, similar to a navigation device in your car, to perform your joint replacement surgery with a goal of advanced accuracy and precision.
