About Catalyst OrthoScience
Catalyst OrthoScience was founded by a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and is comprised of a team of biomedical industry professionals with more than 100 years of combined medical device experience.
The Catalyst CSR Total Shoulder System is the result of the visionary insight of Steven Goldberg, M.D., a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon and shoulder specialist, who devised the next generation, higher precision, less-invasive total shoulder solution with a greatly simplified method of implant placement.
The key design elements of this new system are 1) to preserve as much of the patient’s bone as possible, 2) to create implants to better mimic the natural elliptical shape of the human shoulder, and 3) to provide a system that greatly improves the consistency and reproducibility of the operation.
In 2011, Dr. Goldberg began development of the revolutionary implant with the new shape and created prototypes using a 3-D printing service. Armed with two U.S. provisional patents and positive feedback from several prominent shoulder specialists, the Catalyst CSR Total Shoulder System was born.
