OrthoPediatrics Corp. Announces 1,000th Procedure Utilizing its Innovative Pediatric Nailing Platform | FEMUR (“PNP | FEMUR”) System, the First Pediatric-Specific Solution Optimized to Treat Fractures and Deformities
PNP | FEMUR, which received FDA 510(k) clearance in 2018, is an intramedullary nailing system to stabilize fractures and deformity correction osteotomies. It features a full suite of innovative instrumentation offering two distinct child and adolescent implant options optimized to handle the unique needs of small stature trauma and deformity procedures. The system’s enhanced child sized nails range from 7-9mm and the new adolescent sized nails range from 9-12mm. The PNP system offers the widest range of nail and screw options coupled with unique size specific nail features implanted through proprietary instrumentation; providing a full spectrum, all-inclusive system to treat children of any age and size.
“We are proud of the innovative solutions that evolved from an impressive engineering team working closely with world renowned physician advisors to solve unmet pediatric patient and surgical needs. The PNP|FEMUR is actually OP’s 2nd generation nailing system, which improved upon almost a decade of learnings from the original PediNail system. Being the first to design and launch a pediatric nailing system, we have an obligation to take those learnings and improve,” commented
