Dr. Jay Keener debuts Stryker's new shoulder replacement implant

Spinal Tech

Jay Keener, MD, an orthopedic surgeon in St. Louis, performed the first case with Stryker's Tornier patient-matched glenoid implant.

The device is the first surgeon-driven, primary patient-specific implant available for shoulder replacements, according to a Jan. 20 news release. It is designed for use with Stryker's Blueprint 3D Planning Software.

The Blueprint software virtually positions and creates a patient-matched implant. A glenoid baseplate and patient-specific instrumentation are then provided to surgeons.

"The Patient-Matched Glenoid system increases efficiency in the OR, requiring fewer surgical steps and no glenoid bone reaming," George Athwal, MD, who helped design the implant, said in the release.
