Ascension Orthopedics, a provider of PyroCarbon total joint replacement orthopedic devices, has reported the implantation of the Titan Modular Total Shoulder at Bucks County Specialty Hospital.

The Titan Modular Total Shoulder System offers a bone preserving option for patients needing total or hemi shoulder arthroplasty.

Ascension said the modularity of the system allows independent selection of distal stems and proximal bodies that best match patient anatomy and bone quality.

The system is fully interchangeable allowing all primary and fracture bodies to be used with press-fit or cemented stems.

Bucks County Specialty Hospital in Bensalem Orthopedic surgeon Matthew Ramsey said that the surgery went well and postoperative x-rays showed a very anatomic replacement and the modularity of the Titan Modular Total Shoulder allows the implant to closely match patient anatomy, which is the main goal in a shoulder replacement surgery.

"The instrumentation is streamlined in comparison to other systems I have used, which really helps simplify the procedure," Ramsey said.

Ascension Orthopedics president and CEO Guy Mayer said that they are excited about the increased number of surgeons and facilities implanting the Titan Modular Total Shoulder and added that Ramsey is an excellent surgeon, and they greatly appreciate his support by implanting their shoulder products.

"We are currently working on additional shoulder products that will increase the adaptability of the Titan Modular Shoulder System. We look forward to the continuing success and growth of the new shoulder system," Mayer said.
