Why you should consider Catalyst CSR™
for your shoulder replacement surgery.
Traditional shoulder implants require removal of the top of your humerus so a “stem” can be inserted down into the bone canal. The Catalyst CSR™ Shoulder System is fixed without a stem to preserve as much strong, healthy bone as possible.
The Catalyst CSR™ Shoulder System is a less invasive shoulder replacement solution. The design may help to significantly reduce OR time, exposure to anesthesia and blood loss.¹
The Catalyst CSR™ Shoulder System has a non-spherical design to mimic the shape of the normal human shoulder. Research has shown that shoulder implants designed this way move more like a normal shoulder than traditional spherical shoulder implants.²

— Patient Testimonial —
Annette is a 68-year-old female who suffered with advanced arthritis in both shoulders. She is a healthy and active grandmother who wanted to return to an active lifestyle. Although her arthritis was severe, her rotator cuff muscles were strong and she was an excellent candidate for a total shoulder replacement that replicates the anatomy of her shoulder.
“All I can say is WOW. In March of 2016, I had my right shoulder replaced.
Then in January 2017, I had total shoulder replacement on the left side. Dr. Goldberg was my surgeon
and he spoke with me about the benefits of using the new Catalyst Total Shoulder System.
I thought my right shoulder replacement surgery was fine because it was all I knew at the time.
My result with Catalyst is so much better. After the right shoulder surgery, I slept in a chair for 3 weeks.
This time, on the very first night after surgery, I slept in my bed the whole night. I felt really good and was virtually pain-free.
Three months later, I feel like I haven’t even had surgery. I am able to put dishes away on the top shelf
and hang clothes without difficulty or pain. I definitely could not do that at this point after my right shoulder surgery.
My husband cannot believe how quickly I have recovered, comparatively.
I want to thank Dr. Goldberg for this new surgery procedure. I could cry, I am so happy with my result.”
