Welcome to BoulderCentre for Orthopedics & Spine

Stemless Shoulder Replacement

Stemless shoulder implant procedures allow for improved shoulder function independent from the humeral shaft. Unlike a traditional total shoulder implant, the humeral head, or the metal sphere, does not sit on a traditional stem inside the humeral shaft. 

At BoulderCentre for Orthopedics & Spine, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the most advanced, leading-edge procedures. For this reason, our board-certified and fellowship-trained sports medicine and arthroscopic surgeon Dr. Khemarin Seng performs this advanced shoulder replacement procedure for patients who meet specific criteria.

Choosing stemless shoulder replacement comes with many benefits, including: 

  • A faster & more efficient procedure
  • More bone preservation 
  • Lower risk during the procedure

How do I know if I need a stemless shoulder replacement? 

To be a good candidate for a stemless shoulder replacement, a patient must have a history of proximal humeral fracture and a currently healthy bone. A common symptom candidates may experience is arthritis. 

How is it typically diagnosed?

Our team of expert doctors will diagnose a patient’s condition through thorough evaluation and a comprehensive workup. This includes X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs.
