MAHWAH, N.J.—Stryker, one of the world’s leading medical technology companies, has officially introduced the Tornier shoulder arthroplasty portfolio and launched its first new Tornier product, the Perform Humeral Stem.
“The Tornier shoulder arthroplasty portfolio will set Stryker apart in the shoulder market,” said Mike Panos, president of Stryker’s Trauma & Extremities division. “We are proud to offer surgeons one of the most robust, comprehensive product lines available. We’re delivering on our mission to make healthcare better—for surgeons and the patients they serve.”
Elevated by Blueprint planning software and the market-leading Perform anatomic and reverse glenoid, the new Tornier Perform Humeral Stem offers clinical solutions for the simplest to most complex shoulder arthroplasty cases.
