HOLLAND, Mich., Nov. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Shoulder Innovations announced today that they have received FDA clearance for their InSet Humeral Short Stem System. This is a key addition to their expanding shoulder portfolio and another milestone for their vision to offer a complete leading technology shoulder arthroplasty product line.
The clearance covers products used for partial or total shoulder arthroplasty used in the treatment of degenerative, rheumatoid or traumatic arthritis in the shoulder.

Genesis Innovation Group has moved rapidly in developing this highly innovative new product line. It plays a pivotal role in the Shoulder Innovations strategy, and Genesis has proven to be an excellent partner in helping our company move forward."
