First navigated reverse outpatient total shoulder procedure performed at Atlantic Coast Surgical Suites

Moby Parsons, MD, performed the Seabrook, N.H.-based Atlantic Coast Surgical Suites' first navigated outpatient reverse shoulder replacement using the Exactech GPS system.

Dr. Parsons serves as one of the design surgeons for the Exactech GPS system. The system works by creating a 3D image of a patient's shoulder, which is imported into planning software that allows the surgeon to virtually perform the operation. The Exactech GPS system provides real-time navigation of the surgical plan in the operating room.

Dr. Parsons has two years of experience using the technology and was recently inducted into American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons.
