Patient Risk Information


 

Additional Information


 

For over 40 years anatomic shoulder joint replacement has been used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, fracture, and other difficult clinical management problems where other methods of treatment may not be suitable. The Comprehensive Total Shoulder System is an evolutionary design that allows for surgeon efficiency through surgical flexibility and multiple sizing options.1

  • The Comprehensive Shoulder System can allow patients to regain shoulder movement while reducing or eliminating pain.
  • The implant is designed to enable surgeons to replace the damaged shoulder joint.

While uncommon, complications can occur during and after surgery. Complications include, but are not limited to, infection, implant breakage, nerve damage, and fracture. Any of these complications may require additional surgery. Although implant surgery is extremely successful in most cases, some patients still experience pain and stiffness. No implant will last forever, and the patient's post-surgical activities can affect the longevity of the implant. Be sure to discuss these and other risks with your surgeon..

Biomet is a manufacturer of orthopedic implants and does not practice medicine. Only an orthopedic surgeoncan determine what treatment is appropriate. Individual results of total joint replacement may vary. The life of any implant will depend on your weight, age, activity level, and other factors. For more information on risks, warnings, and possible adverse effects, see the Patient Risk Information section found within Biomet.com. Always ask your doctor if you have any questions regarding your particular condition or treatment options.
