“Our partnership with Mighty Oak Medical is one more way OrthoPediatrics is advancing the field of pediatric orthopedics," said David Bailey, executive vice president of OrthoPediatrics. "The FIREFLY Technology will be a valuable addition to our spine portfolio, and we are pleased to partner with another company that is leading innovation in pediatric orthopedics.”
“This distribution relationship is going to highlight the stark differences between robotic and optical navigation systems, which can cost up to a million dollars and are highly complex and radiation heavy, with the 3D printed patient-specific disposable solution of FIREFLY. In the hands of the OrthoPediatrics team, we believe the FIREFLY Guides’ validated 99.7 percent accuracy, combined with ease of use, should quickly bring a safe and reliable navigation tool to pediatric facilities across the United States,” said Heidi Frey, president of Mighty Oak Medical.
