York, ME – Dr. Mayo Noerdlinger, Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon and provider at Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, recently became the first surgeon in the Northeast to perform a shoulder replacement surgery using ExactechGPS-guided technology, an innovative new procedure for shoulder replacement. Already one of the top shoulder surgeons in the Northeast, Dr. Noerdlinger and his patients will benefit even more with this new technology, a major advancement in shoulder replacement. Dr. Noerdlinger performed his first surgery of this procedure at York Hospital, the first hospital in the Northeast to purchase ExactechGPS. This was the premier surgical case north of the Mason-Dixon line of the Mid-Atlantic.
ExactechGPS shoulder replacement, also called ExactechGPS Shoulder Application, improves the precision and predictability of shoulder surgery from preoperative planning to real-time execution. This new technology helps the surgeon better understand his or her patient’s anatomy before entering the operating room, and while during surgery ExactechGPS provides a real-time view of the implant placement process and guides the surgeon toward any necessary adjustments.
“ExactechGPS gives us much more flexibility when it comes to treating shoulder pain operatively,” Dr. Noerdlinger said. “Without a doubt, surgeons will be able to operate more precisely thanks to the computer navigation, which will decrease complication and speed up recovery for our patients.”
