OrthoGrid will be showcasing its HipGrid System, a patented image-enhancement device engineered to help orthopedic surgeons improve acetabular cup angle, leg length, and hip offset. The HipGrid System has also been shown to reduce average surgical time and is widely utilized in the Direct Anterior Approach Hip Arthroplasty, a fast-growing technique that accounts for nearly a third of all hip replacement surgeries in the USA.1
In addition to the HipGrid System technical exhibit, OrthoGrid is pleased to offer an educational lecture by renowned physician John Masonis, MD, of OrthoCarolina in Charlotte, N.C., in which he will discuss the effective use of fluoroscopy in Direct Anterior Approach Hip Arthroplasty and the proper application of OrthoGrid's HipGrid System.
"OrthoGrid's HipGrid System has tremendous potential to aid physicians with implant positioning and component placement in total hip arthroplasty procedures. By attaching directly to mobile C-Arm systems and providing instantaneous feedback, surgeons can anticipate greater confidence in limb alignment and leg length, two key metrics that directly influence surgical outcomes and patient satisfaction," explained Edouard Saget, president of OrthoGrid Systems."
