WARSAW, Ind., March 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OrthoPediatrics Corp. (“OrthoPediatrics”) (NASDAQ: KIDS), a company focused exclusively on advancing the field of pediatric orthopedics, was the leading sponsor of the 7th Annual International Children’s Spine Symposium (ICSS), which took place February 25-26, 2022 in Orlando, Florida. The meeting offered a comprehensive program of lectures given from an outstanding international faculty as well as hands-on cadaver labs centered on the cervical spine, lumbo-sacral junction, neuromonitoring, and various aspects of scoliosis.
Over the course of the event, the Company will highlight the unique benefits of its RESPONSE™ Scoliosis System, FIREFLY Pedicle Screw Navigation Guides, which feature intuitive, 3D printed, patient-specific technology that eliminates the need for intraoperative radiation and the excessive fluoroscopy typically required with complex spinal reconstruction surgeries. Additionally, the Company presented its ApiFix System, a technology which offers a non-fusion alternative to adolescent idiopathic scoliosis surgery. The Company acquired the Israeli-based ApiFix technology in 2020 and has been building a rigorous patient registry in the US alongside the commercial launch of the product.
In addition to showcasing its product offering, the Company provides travel grants for senior residents and fellows to enable attendance at the meeting.
Paul Mraz, Senior Vice President and General Manager of OrthoPediatrics’ Scoliosis business commented, “We are delighted to continue providing pediatric orthopedic surgeons and healthcare providers with access to exceptional education opportunities. The ICSS meeting provides intimate access for its international attendees to a world-class faculty with a combination of both didactic and hands-on sessions. OrthoPediatrics remains committed to making education and training a meaningful part of what we as a company provide to the world of pediatrics on an ongoing basis.”
