"All surgeons want to provide the best outcome for their patients. A hip replacement should strive to replicate native anatomy as this best optimizes muscle function and overall recovery. When it comes to a successful hip surgery, nature knows best and intellijoint HIP provides me with the real-time information I need to better replicate patient anatomy," commented Dr. Peter Sculco. "Intellijoint empowers me to more accurately restore hip biomechanics which leads to satisfied patients and a rewarding clinical practice."
To publicly acknowledge and thank the many healthcare professionals involved in early adoption of intellijoint HIP, Intellijoint Surgical has launched 1000 Thanks—a digital collage featuring those who were a part of the first 1,000 procedures. Each photo was taken using intellijoint HIP's novel 3D mini-optical camera in a "selfie" style to capture the individual in their work environment. Orthopaedic surgeons, nurses, physician assistants, surgical technicians, clinical coordinators, implant technicians and more from New York, Greater Chicago, Toronto, and surrounding area hospitals all volunteered to participate in this initiative.
"Reaching 1,000 procedures in year one of sales is a significant milestone for our company," said Armen Bakirtzian, CEO and co-founder of Intellijoint Surgical. "We wouldn't be here without the great teams of surgeons, nurses, OR staff and administrators focused on improving care for their patients."
Intellijoint continues to grow aggressively within its existing markets and plans to expand to new markets early this summer.
