​Computer-Assisted Surgery

Computer-assisted surgery allows a surgeon to use a software system to help plan procedures and control and move surgical instruments. Surgeons can use this system during some shoulder replacements and reverse replacements.

Using the technology allows surgeons to set coordinates and the GPS navigation ensures placement is precise. It is not a full robotic experience. The surgeon is placing the implant by hand, with the guide of the GPS navigation. It helps the surgeon select the strongest area and so the replacement more stable for long-term use.
