SALT LAKE CITY, August 27, 2021 / PRNewswire / – OrthoGrid® Systems, Inc., a global medical technology leader on a mission to digitally transform intraoperative musculoskeletal surgery, announces the launch of its new hip preservation app OrthoGrid after receiving FDA clearance on February 18, 2021. The OrthoGrid hip preservation application is the latest version of OrthoGrid’s patented intraoperative alignment technology for distortion correction and periacetabular osteotomy and femoroplasty.
Hip preservation procedures are a growing segment of orthopedic procedures for young, active patients who hope to maintain their activity level for as long as possible. With these complex procedures, surgeons are looking for solutions to support their precision, efficiency and reproducibility.
OrthoGrid Hip Preservation represents a revolutionary non-invasive navigation application available to surgeons for the intraoperative surgical treatment of the pre-arthritic hip. The addition of the OrthoGrid Hip Preservation app to the OrthoGrid digital navigation platform now provides surgeons with a suite of tools designed to enable them to achieve their surgical goals with greater precision1 and efficiency. This latter application is the only system on the market which corrects the distortion existing in most imaging tools used in the operating room, a source of possible major errors in the assessment of key measurements. Along with this most important upgrade, surgeons can benefit from a seamless integration into their workflow of all the measurement and evaluation tools on which they depend to ensure reproducible results in these age-sensitive procedures. .
“Hip preservation surgery has such an impact on a population of young patients in my practice. Periacetabular osteotomy is an invasive procedure and I feel compelled to use any tool that supports my promise to provide these teens and young adults with the best results I have.The OrthoGrid Hip Preservation application has helped me leave the operating room knowing that our goal of correcting a patient’s deformity has been achieved against our plan, ”says Chris Peters, MD, Vice President of Clinical Operations, Head of Adult Reconstruction and Hip Preservation, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Utah.
“OrthoGrid’s digital navigation platform is designed to transform orthopedic surgery by deploying its capabilities in multiple segments of orthopedics. For example, the ability to correct fluoroscopic distortion is essential for surgeons to be able to trust their intraoperative images. From total hip replacement to hip preservation, we are happy to demonstrate the power of the technology that we make available to surgeons, hospitals and patients, ”said Edouard Saget, co-founder and co- CEO of OrthoGrid Systems.
