Division: Shoulder Reconstruction
DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction has combined innovative science and simple instrumentation with the GLOBAL Shoulder's nearly two decades of clinical heritage1 to bring you the GLOBAL ADVANTAGE Shoulder Arthroplasty System. The GLOBAL ADVANTAGE Shoulder system brings together a proximal press-fit humeral stem, low profile standard and eccentric humeral head options with easy-to-use instruments.
GLOBAL ADVANTAGE Instrumentation System is designed to offer surgeons a straightforward surgical technique that prepares the proximal humerus, positions the trial, and places the definitive implant to achieve adequate joint mechanics and potential pain relief for patients. The instruments were designed for ease of use and Operating Room efficiency by incorporating features that enhance versatility, simplicity and precision throughout the surgical approach.
