The Christ Hospital Health Network always strives to work with the latest cutting-edge technology. Paul Favorito, MD, orthopedic shoulder surgeon and Division Chief of the Shoulder and Upper Extremity Service at The Christ Hospital Health Network, was the first in the country to implant a new FDA-approved shoulder implant. The brand-new shoulder implant baseplate, manufactured by DePuy Synthes and part of their reverse shoulder replacement platform system, was designed in collaboration with physicians, including Dr. Favorito. This implant has wide applications for the treatment of arthritis, rotator cuff tears and fractures. This improves upon already exceptional outcomes for the patient by enhancing stability while providing a solution for bone loss in patients. Dr. Favorito says offering this specific implant at The Christ Hospital Health Network means patients will not have to travel far for the newest medical technology.
