AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ — Ascension Orthopedics,
Inc., the world leader in PyroCarbon orthopedic devices, announces
FDA approval to market the TITAN™ Modular Total Shoulder
System. This newly designed system redefines modularity by
providing multiple surgical solutions for shoulder arthroplasty
with one implant system.
The TITAN Modular Total Shoulder System was developed in
collaboration with Joseph Abboud, M.D, Phillip Duke, MB.BS, FRACS,
FA(ORTH)A, William Geissler, M.D., Anand Murthi, M.D., Matthew
Ramsey, M.D., and Mark Ross, MB.BS.FRACS(ORTH). “The years of
experience in shoulder arthroplasty within this team shows through
in the final design. Their passion and excitement during this
development was great motivation for everyone here at Ascension
Orthopedics. We are very fortunate to be able to work with such a
knowledgeable and reputable group of surgeons,” stated Guy Mayer,
President and CEO of Ascension Orthopedics.
The TITAN Modular Total Shoulder System offers a bone-preserving
option for patients needing total or hemi shoulder arthroplasty.
The modularity of the system allows the surgeon to independently
select distal stems and proximal bodies that best match the
patient’s anatomy and bone quality. The system is fully
interchangeable – allowing all primary and fracture bodies to
be used with either press-fit or cemented stems. There are 26
humeral head sizing options available, which are based on published
anthropomorphic data of over 300 human humeri to provide anatomic
fit. The system also offers multiple glenoid options for patients
needing total shoulder replacement.
“This is a very exciting time for Ascension Orthopedics. The FDA
approval of the TITAN Modular Total Shoulder System marks a great
milestone for us. We look forward to the success of this system as
well as the future expansion planned for our shoulder line. Now we
are able to offer patients a bone-preserving option fo
