The Sidus Stem-Free Shoulder system is designed to anatomically restore a patient's anatomy, preserve bone stock and allow for improved pre- to post-operative patient outcomes.1,2 The Sidus system will be available in the United States beginning in the first quarter of 2018.
"The Sidus Stem-Free Shoulder system offers a novel approach to total shoulder arthroplasty requiring minimal bone resection," said Dr. Ryan Krupp, orthopedic surgeon at Norton Orthopedic Specialists in Louisville, Ky. "The Sidus system is designed to reduce pain and restore range of motion and is clinically proven to help suitable patients."1,2
"The FDA clearance of the Sidus Stem-Free Shoulder system comes at a time when Zimmer Biomet is accelerating the pace of innovation," said Bryan C. Hanson, Zimmer Biomet president and CEO. "We launched Sidus in Europe in 2012 and initiated a clinical study in the U.S. in 2015. During that time, the product has demonstrated strong clinical performance. The addition of the Sidus system to Zimmer Biomet's U.S. portfolio reinforces the company's leadership in the innovation of shoulder solutions."
