(Osteoprosthetic growth)


 i. Benefits

Prosthetics that are used today to completely replace bones are limited by the inability to expand without the patient feeling pain or going in for multiple surgeries.  Our new prosthetic will improve the quality of life for oncological patients, but also has practical applications in trauma emergencies and orthopedic corrections. 

A comminuted fracture is a fracture in which the bone is splintered or crushed. Rather than trying to pin crushed bones together which often requires numerous surgeries, the crushed bone can be replaced with our new prosthetic and will continue to grow as the patient grows.

Orthopedic corrections include use in patients with scoliosis, leg-length inequality and myelomeningocele, which is a congenital disorder where the backbone and spinal canal do not close before birth.   This prosthetic can be used to replace any damaged bone, with the added benefit of the implant continuing to grow with the patient.
