WARSAW, INDIANA (PRWEB) October 13, 2015
OrthoPediatrics announces its presence at the North American Spine Society 30th annual meeting being held in Chicago, Illinois this week from October 14 – 17. As a company with an exclusive focus on developing orthopedic devices for children, OrthoPediatrics looks forward to presenting the innovative and unique pediatric-specific technology found within their successful RESPONSE™ Spine System to all spine care professionals in attendance.
With over 170 cases completed within the first few months of release, the RESPONSE Spine System has seen great clinical success and advances in correcting spinal deformities in pediatric patients. The system is designed to specifically address the distinct needs of children with spinal deformities by featuring low-profile implants that accept 5.5mm or 6.0mm diameter rods and intuitive instrumentation to promote ease of use in pediatric anatomy. The system features the Jiminy™ Rod Reducer instrument, which is designed to snap on and off easily and enables each surgeon to perform reduction and de-rotation techniques for the most complex spinal deformities.
“The RESPONSE Spine System was developed with pediatric orthopedic surgeons and for pediatric surgeons to provide the pediatric spinal deformity patients exactly what they need,” said Jeff Smithey, Vice President of Spine at OrthoPediatrics, “and this innovative technology from OrthoPediatrics further represents our commitment as the only company completely focused on providing high quality solutions for pediatric orthopedic patients.”
For additional information, OrthoPediatrics will be available at booth number 537 throughout the duration of the meeting.
