OrthoPediatrics is a proud sponsor of the 50th Annual Meeting for the Scoliosis Research Society in Minneapolis, September 30th to October 3rd. The Scoliosis Research Society is an international organization dedicated to the education, research and treatment of Spinal Deformity. The Scoliosis Research Society is directly aligned with OrthoPediatrics’ cause of helping children with pediatric orthopedic conditions. Our sponsorship of this premiere event represents our on-going commitment to the training and education of our clinical partners, as well as a tremendous learning opportunity of how our organization can better service the unique needs of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons and patients with scoliosis.
In June, 2015, the Company launched the RESPONSE™ Spine System, which was designed with Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons for pediatric spinal deformity patients.
“The RESPONSE™ Spine System was developed with the pediatric patient in mind by having one of the lowest profile screws, simple Jiminy™ rod reduction and de-rotation instrumentation, which has allowed me to be more efficient and gain better correction,” said George H. Thompson, MD., Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery & Pediatrics at Case Western Reserve University and Director of Pediatric Orthopaedics at Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital. “Plus, the overall modularity of the system helps with OR efficiency. The technology OrthoPediatrics is developing shows they are listening to what I and my patients need.”
