“Pioneering Techniques in Shoulder Replacement: 

Past, Present and Future”

In 1893 Paris, the first shoulder replacement was performed on a 37 year-old man with destructive tuberculosis of the shoulder joint.  From this experimental last resort, using a simple but ingenious design of platinum and natural rubber, shoulder replacement has become a common and routine surgery.  It has transformed from an initial indication to treat degeneration of a joint to a solution for complex fractures and even failed rotator cuff tears.  After reviewing the anatomy, history and biomechanics involved, shoulder surgeon Evan Conte will discuss the future of shoulder replacement and, in particular, how it will incorporate advances in computer-aided design, biomedical imaging and 3D printing to enable patient-specific approaches to complex pathologies.
