Patient Risk Information

The Comprehensive® Shoulder System

Approximately 60% of all shoulder replacements result from proximal humeral fractures.1 A proximal humeral fracture is a break to the ball at the top of the upper-arm bone. These fractures typically occur when people fall on an outstretched hand.1

The Comprehensive® Shoulder System was developed in conjunction with David Dines, M.D., Russell Warren, M.D., Edward Craig, M.D., and Donald Lee, M.D. The implant is designed to enable surgeons to repair broken bone while replacing the damaged shoulder joint. The Comprehensive® Shoulder System can allow patients to regain shoulder movement while reducing or eliminating pain.
