Dr. Jonathan Hersch featured in newspaper for offering innovative GPS guided shoulder replacement
Orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist Jonathan Hersch, MD, FAAOS with Tenet Florida Physician Services and West Boca Medical Center in Boca Raton is now specializing in the new ExactTechGPS® Shoulder Application, a preoperative surgery planning tool.
Dr. Hersch is using this technology as a tool to create guided personalized surgery for shoulder replacements. Similar to a GPS navigation device in a vehicle, this shoulder procedure platform gives the surgeon a visual map of the patient’s shoulder joint on a high-definition (HD) screen. This allows the shoulder specialist to combine their preoperative planning with intraoperative computer-assisted technology. Dr. Hersch said this helps to perform implant alignment relative to the patient’s needs.
