MicroPort Orthopedics announced the availability of its Profemur® Gladiator® HA Collared Stem and Profemur® Gladiator® Cemented Collared Stem.
Combined with its current Profemur® Gladiator® Plasma Stem, the Gladiator® Hip Stem System is now complete, offering a wide range of indications in the treatment of both high demand total hip arthroplasties and low demand fracture patients.
Designed for primary hip replacement surgery, the Profemur® Gladiator® Hip Stems all offer a triple wedge tapered design with distinct geometry. The hip stem is designed with a reduced lateral shoulder convenient for tissue-sparing techniques, making it perfectly suited to be used with MicroPort’s disruptive innovation through the Anterior Path® surgical approach. The Profemur® line of Hip Stems gives surgeons the versatility to address their patients’ needs with one set of instruments in this truly comprehensive system.
“By allowing surgeons to cater a femoral hip system to their preferred techniques, we have created a customizable hip system that is Simply Versatile™ in its ability to exceed the needs of each surgeon, designed to help our surgeons more effectively treat patients,” said Benny Hagag, President of MicroPort Orthopedics. “This customization to tissue-sparing techniques allows for streamlined preoperative planning, excellent patient outcomes1,2, and a quicker recovery3. The proof is in our patients.”
