Alliance™ Glenoid

One System, One Instrument Case, Two Choices


The Alliance Glenoid is the first anatomic glenoid system to offer standard and half-wedge augmented implant options to treat posterior erosion with minimal bone removal. 



Clinically proven1-6 Trabecular Metal porous material is incorporated into the shortened center post design for biologic in-growth.



The systems instrumentation, delivered in one case, facilitates a simple augment preparation and surgical workflow.

Bone Conservation

26% less center post bone removal compared to the Comprehensive® Hybrid system.7
