New fluoroscopic alignment system is engineered for clinical applications in peri-acetabular osteotomy and femoral acetabular impingement
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, February 11, 2019 – OrthoGrid Systems, Inc., a leading innovator in surgical imaging, workflow efficiency and decision-making support in orthopedic surgery, today announced that its new PhantomMSK™ Hip Preservation System, with novel new applications for peri-acetabular osteotomy (PAO) procedure and treatment of femoral acetabular impingement (FAI), will be unveiled at the 2019 annual meeting of American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in Las Vegas, NV. OrthoGrid Systems will be in Hall A, booth #625.
“Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a relatively common condition that can lead to early onset osteoarthritis, pain, and limited mobility,” explained Richard Boddington, CEO of OrthoGrid Systems.“ Because DDH can be difficult to treat and can also become symptomatic early in life due to bony impingement and profound cartilage loss, there is a tremendous need for better solutions. OrthoGrid’s new PhantomMSK Hip Preservation applications are exceptional because they seamlessly integrate into the standard workflow, enhance procedural decision making, and confirm preoperative surgical plans intraoperatively during these complex surgeries”
OrthoGrid’s PhantomMSK System is a digital platform for orthopedics that also includes patented solutions for total hip arthroplasty and other in-process applications. In conjunction with OrthoGrid’s HipGrid® and HipGrid NINE product lines, the PhantomMSK offers a clinically relevant, cost-effective, and completely mobile solution that can be installed in either ambulatory surgical centers or hospitals.
“Peri-acetabular osteotomy can be a technically demanding procedure, and physicians rely heavily on fluoroscopic imaging that is often marred by fluoroscopic distortion,” noted renowned Salt Lake City-based orthopedic surgeon, Christopher Peters, MD. “OrthoGrid’s PhantomMSK System directly addresses the distortion in a manner that is simple and that can contribute to a tremendous difference in the final outcome.”
