WARSAW, Ind., April 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OrthoPediatrics Corp. (“OrthoPediatrics” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: KIDS) a company focused exclusively on advancing the field of pediatric orthopedics, today announced the release of its new Cannulated Screw System for the RESPONSE™ Scoliosis portfolio. The RESPONSE 5.5/6.0 Cannulated Screw system is a complete portfolio of instruments and implants and represents the Company’s 47th surgical system and it’s continued commitment to leading innovation in pediatric orthopedics.
Greg Odle, President of OrthoPediatrics’ Scoliosis business, commented, “I’m incredibly proud of the team who led this development project! The launch of our RESPONSE 5.5/6.0 Cannulated Screw System is the latest addition to our Scoliosis franchise. The early feedback we have received from designing surgeons has been very positive – and we see this new system as an ideal solution for S1AI (S2 Alar-Iliac) screw placement.”
“S2 Alar fixation has become nearly universally adopted as the standard for pelvic fixation in neuromuscular spine deformity surgery,” said Dr. Brad Culotta, Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Baton Rouge Orthopaedic Clinic. “Now the instrumentation has evolved to allow surgeons to accurately and seamlessly place these screws. The OP cannulated system allows me to keep my desired path for screw placement from awl to tap to screw, saving me time and minimizing errors during instrumentation and screw insertion.”
