Steven Goldberg, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at Physicians Regional Medical Center in Naples, Fla., and Zachary Leitze, MD, an orthopedic surgeon with Intermountain Medical Group in St. George, Utah, were among the first surgeons to use Catalyst OrthoScience's Archer R1 reverse shoulder system, Catalyst said this week.

The shoulder system received FDA clearance in March, and a commercial launch is planned for later this year, according to the May 5 news release. The single-tray arthroplasty system maximizes efficiency and bone preservation, Catalyst said.

"These first surgeries with our Archer R1 reverse system went well, and we’re excited by the feedback we’re getting from the initial surgeon users," Catalyst chair and CEO Brian Hutchinson said.
