Abstract

A method of aligning implant components includes placing a first implant component in bone, followed by: coupling a first intermediate member to the first implant component; coupling a first alignment member to the first intermediate member; rotating the members as a unit to place the first intermediate member in an alignment position; removing the first alignment member from the first intermediate member; coupling a second alignment member to a second intermediate member; coupling the second intermediate member to the first intermediate member and rotating the second alignment member and the second intermediate member as a unit relative to the first intermediate member to provide a desired orientation of the second intermediate member. An alignment system for aligning first and second members includes a first alignment member having an offset channel dimensioned to receive the first member, and a second alignment member having a channel dimensioned to receive the second member.
