Marrow Acess Technologies
Marrow Access‘ SmartShot marrow access device is a surgical instrument designed to help regenerate cartilage for patients with cartilage defects.
It can be used for standalone marrow stimulation therapy or with biologics. SmartShot is an alternative to powered drilling and microfracture, in which the doctor hits a mallet, forcing a pick into the bone, which can crush and compact bone and nerve cells. SmartShot is designed to create tiny, precise channels that stimulate more marrow with less bone damage than traditional processes, according to the company’s website.
