Is there such a thing as an integrated handlebars and stem with a positive stem rise?

Still trying to understand how someone who is 182 cm tall, with a 184 'wingspan', and 84 cm inseam needs an 8 cm stem?
Maybe due to past injuries causing inflexible back, maybe short arms, maybe short torso and long neck.
Then perhaps the fitter should have done the right thing - told his client that the bike he had just bought was incompatible with his build.

Sell the Emonda and get a Domane or something similar else from the endurance/all road catagory like a Giant Defy. Anything with much higher stack and shorter reach.

That way you can get the integrated look you want, not ride with such a short stem which is going to affect handling and a better fitting bike will be faster than an ill fitting one.
