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.
