The device is designed specifically for pediatric patients and is designed to address the demands of advanced deformity and trauma reconstruction of the lower extremities.
“The field of deformity correction is rapidly evolving with multiple technical and technological advances every year,” said Philip McClure, an orthopedic surgeon at the International Center for Limb Lengthening in Baltimore. “External fixators are an incredibly powerful tool in caring for deformities in children around the world. Improved designs of internal fixation devices have allowed us to provide complimentary options to external fixators to benefit our patients and their families. Our goal is to obtain the best possible outcome so children can enjoy their lives after deformity correction surgery.”
