La Mesa, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/15/2014 -- The "Match Point System," a shoulder instrumentation developed by leading health device specialist DJO Global, Inc., is poised to revolutionize operative surgery plans with its leading edge technology.
Dr. Benjamin DuBois, MD, one of the best orthopedic surgeons in San Diego, is the first surgeon in San Diego to put the software to the test.
The "Match Point" technology is a type of proven pre-operative planning software that modifies the surgeon's operative plan based on his or her preference. Once planned, a 3D-printed disposable model is created to accommodate the patient's anatomy, precisely placing the implant, minimizing OR time, blood loss and lowering revision rates.
Dr. DuBois was first in San Diego to perform conventional total shoulder replacement with the advanced pre-operative surgical planning and patient-customized guides provided by DJO Global's Match Point technology.
Total Shoulder Arthroplasty is recommended for severe shoulder glenohumeral arthritis of the ball and socket joint when non-operative treatment fails. It is performed even by the most skilled surgeons with standard guides to help them properly position the implants, or risk worse outcomes in relation to pain, range of motion and function.
"I am very excited to be able to bring this cutting edge technology to my patients here in San Diego, CA," said Dr. DuBois about the newest milestone in his practice. "The most recent development of 'patient specific guides' will give my patients better log termresults due to the precision on the implant placement."
Dr. DuBois is affiliated with Sharp HealthCare, a not-for-profit integrated regional health care delivery system, and is part of Grossmont Orthopaedic Medical Group. He is a board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who devotes 100% of his practice to the treatment of shoulder disorders, specializing in shoulder surgery, shoulder replacements, rotator cuff disorders, and arthroscopic shoulder surgery.
