We have options that are patient specific, so we use guides now which can allow us to really implant our components with pinpoint accuracy for each patient. And we have bone-preserving stimulus components. We have components now where we can 3D-print a model of a patient’s scapula and get a designed implant.

All these options offer significant pain relief.

Now we are able to offer outpatient shoulder replacement, even going home the same day or staying 23 hours. We’re offering those at Medical Center Jewish East. We have patients who go back to all types of sporting activities.
