Exactech’s Equinoxe® Stemless Shoulder Replacement System Debuts in Europe

The Equinoxe Stemless Shoulder Was Introduced in the U.S. in 2018

Exactech, a developer and producer of innovative implants, instrumentation and smart technologies for joint replacement surgery, announced today that the first anatomic total shoulder surgery has been performed in Europe using its bone-conserving, 3D-printed Equinoxe® Stemless Shoulder. Prof. Mark Tauber, MD, Ph.D., of Athos Klinik in Munich, Germany, performed the first surgery earlier this month.

“It was wonderful to be the first user of the Exactech Stemless humeral component in Europe,” Tauber said. “I’ve used stemless implants with various systems since 2007, so I know what we are talking about and have to congratulate Exactech for this product. The user-friendly instrumentation and implant design features made a really convincing impression regarding primary stability.”

The Equinoxe Stemless Shoulder was introduced in the U.S. in 2018 and is manufactured using direct metal 3D printing with high precision lasers to create its porous bone cage. This humeral component’s bone cage structure is designed for initial press-fit and biologic fixation.

“We are thrilled to offer this innovative product to our European partners, surgeons and patients. We hope this implant helps many patients get back to what they love, and we look forward to supporting our sales team members and surgeon customers,” said Bruce Thompson, Exactech’s Senior Vice President of International Sales.

Additional features of the product include the humeral component’s optimized pore size, count and porosity, as well as surgical efficiency through its single instrument tray. Surgeons can also use it in conjunction with the Equinoxe Shoulder System’s standard and augmented glenoid solutions.

The Stemless Shoulder was designed with doctors Curtis Noel, of the Crystal Clinic in Akron, Ohio; Felix “Buddy” Savoie, of Tulane University in New Orleans, La.; Pierre-Henri Flurin, of Clinique du Sport in Bordeaux-Mérignac, France; Ryan Simovitch, of HSS Florida in West Palm Beach, Fla.; Thomas Wright, of the University of Florida, in Gainesville, Fla.; and Joseph Zuckerman, of NYU Langone Orthopaedic Hospital, in New York City.

Exactech plans to roll out additional inventory throughout the rest of 2021. Interested surgeons can learn more about the implant and its instrumentation at upcoming society shows throughout Europe or by visiting each country’s website:
