  • positioning a bone-engagement member along a humeral head surface of a humeral bone;

    positioning a registration member along a bicipital groove surface of a humeral bone;

    squeezing the registration member and the bone-engagement member to cause bending of the registration member relative to the bone-engagement member and thereby ensure seating of the humeral cut guide;

    sliding a cut guide plate along an elongate member extending from the humeral cut guide to engage the humeral head surface of the humeral bone; and

    resecting or resurfacing the humeral head using a cutting device engaged with the cut guide plate.
