At Vero Orthopaedics, we are committed to providing the most state-of-the-art technologies and techniques to help you receive the highest level of quality, compassionate care. Because of this, we offer the advanced Virtual Implant Positioning (VIP) Preoperative Planning System as an innovative solution for those who suffer from shoulder disease or degeneration. 

Performed by our specialty-trained shoulder surgeons, Daniel S. Plessl, M.D., and Erin E. Forest, M.D., the VIP system helps our specialists create an individualized shoulder replacement plan to meet each patient’s specific needs and goals.

Using a CT scan and the advanced VIP system, our surgeons are able to predefine the boundaries of the operation through a three-dimensional image of the shoulder. When the procedure begins, our doctors use their expertise, the 3D image, and the VIP system to maintain those specified boundaries and spare healthy bones or ligaments from being removed. 

The VIP system provides the following benefits: 

  • Decreases infection risk 
  • Improves range of motion 
  • Increases accuracy and precision of surgical process
  • Reduces future complications 

To consult with one of our shoulder surgeons at Vero Orthopaedics, please schedule an appointment online or call (772) 569-2330. We have offices conveniently located in Vero Beach and Sebastian.
