The Simpliciti Shoulder System is redefining the total shoulder arthroplasty market by providing a total shoulder solution that addresses glenohumeral arthritis while preserving the humeral canal for potential future revisions.
The evolution of Simpliciti is a direct result of a desire to improve upon current total shoulder arthroplasty challenges and complications. This evolution has led to a reduction of humeral stem lengths and stabilization fins. The result is the Simpliciti Shoulder System. The canal sparing design eliminates canal-based constraints to allow for anatomic stem placement, preserves bone stock for future prosthetic intervention, and addresses the potential effects of stress fractures, prosthetic loosening and stress shielding.
The Simpliciti implant can be paired with both anatomic and Soft Tissue Balancing (STB) humeral head options in addition to the PerFORM Glenoid System.
With Tornier’s commitment to better patient outcomes, Tornier completed a rigorous prospective, single arm, multi-center study to demonstrate safety and efficacy of Simpliciti. This FDA IDE trial included 14 centers with enrollment of 157 patients followed to 24 months. Outcome scores were comparable to historical stemmed components with no radiolucency or signs of loosening, subsidence, or migration reported. Additional information includes:

Evenly distributes loads and resists subsidence while one piece design eliminates risk of disassociation
Provides exceptional initial stability while allowing for bone in-growth
Provides rotational stability
Minimizes removal impact during revision surgery
Facilitates glenoid access
The Simpliciti instrumentation provides a fast, bone preserving process that utilizes standard humeral head resection but no reaming or sounding of the humeral canal. The Simpliciti instrumentation focuses on minimal bone compaction with a press-fit porous coated implant to provide exceptional securement.
