Your Shoulder Requires a Unique Roadmap
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. MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center is the first hospital in Los Angeles County to offer ExactechGPS® Guided Personalized Surgery technology, which combines surgeon expertise with an advanced computer system, similar to a navigation device in your car, to perform your shoulder replacement surgery with a goal of advanced accuracy and precision.
ExactechGPS pairs surgeon expertise with an advanced computer system to perform the patient’s shoulder surgery with a goal of improved accuracy and precision.
