Stryker Corporation SYK recently officially launched the Tornier shoulder arthroplasty portfolio and introduced its first new Tornier product — the Perform Humeral Stem. The launch of this portfolio is likely to provide a competitive edge to Stryker in the shoulder market.

For investors’ note, the new Tornier Perform Humeral Stem is backed by Blueprint planning software and the market-leading Perform anatomic and reverse glenoid. This, in turn, helps the product to provide clinical solutions for shoulder arthroplasty cases ranging from the simplest to the most complex.

The Tornier Perform Humeral Stem can be utilized in anatomic, reverse and hemiarthroplasty of the shoulder. It aids in conversion from an anatomic to a reverse shoulder prosthesis in the case of revision.

This launch is not only likely to give a boost to Stryker’s Orthopaedics segment but also strengthen its diversified product portfolio.

More on the News

Per management, the introduction of this portfolio will provide surgeons with the one of the most solid, all-inclusive product lines available.
