Joint Management

Versatile treatment options

We’ve developed comprehensive systems to address joint management issues using a variety of surgical approaches. By offering a range of techniques, price points and levels of technical difficulty, you can choose the approach that makes the most sense for both your patient, and your practice.

PowerX Lateral Suture System

Our patented PowerX crimping system is not only easier and more efficient to use than comparable products on the market, its precisely engineered wave pattern is clinically proven to be stronger. Our convenient procedure kit includes sterile-packed consumables that preserve the integrity of the suture material by eliminating the need to autoclave. The patented self-retaining tensioning device allows you to accurately tension the suture and check for anterior drawer.

Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA)

Our XGEN TTA system increases surgical options while reducing inventory. We were first to develop a forkless system, which, along with our cuttable cages, greatly reduces the inventory required for this procedure.

Available in both stainless steel and biocompatible titanium, the XGEN plate’s unique hole spacing offers optimal proximal/distal placement by allowing you to pivot the plate around the top screw. Since no hammering or force is needed to seat the plate, there’s no concern of separating the tuberosity prior to completing the cut.

Tibial Plateau-Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO)

TPLO provides some of the best outcomes for stifle stabilization in cruciate-deficient dogs. We offer two lines of TPLO plates—patented conventional (non-locking) stainless steel plates, and a polyaxial locking plate and screw system (PAX). Made of biocompatible titanium alloy, our PAX plates and screws feature a crescent head to accommodate high tibial osteotomies, and a proximocaudal curve to optimize plate alignment and screw purchase.

Patellar Luxation Correction

Our PLX Saw is an innovative solution to the shortcomings of the traditional saw used for deepening the trochlear groove during patellar luxation repair. A single-screw locking assembly helps ensure the saw blade remains perfectly straight, eliminating the need for extra screws and a wrench. With an ergonomic design, the PLX saw’s anodized aluminum handle and stainless steel blades are fully autoclavable, easy to assemble, clean, and manipulate.

Coxofemoral Luxation Management (CLM)

Our unique CLM system is clinically proven to be mechanically unrivaled. A less-traumatic alternative to a femeral head osteotomy for luxated hips, our system preserves more of the dog’s natural anatomy. The system features an aiming guide to simplify the drilling of the femoral neck tunnel, an insertion device to place the toggle rod behind the medial wall of the acetabulum, and a suture puller to guide the suture through the drilled hole. The system can be purchased as a whole or by its independent components.

The standard for customer experience

We take pride in our ability to offer premium quality implants and instruments, with an exceptional warranty and unmatched repair services, at a price that makes sense for your practice.
