Why we focus on hands.

Thought to originate with the casualties of World War II, hand surgery is one of the last disciplines to emerge as its own specialty. With an unprecedented number of injured survivors - general, plastic, orthopaedic, vascular and neuro surgeons combined efforts to address the need for advancement in treating acute hand injuries.1

With dedicated experience, knowledge, research and technological advances, hand surgery continues to flourish and offers significant opportunity for advancement in the future.

The Micro Screw System

The world's smallest cannulated screw.

The fully cannulated Micro Screw system is designed to address the challenges of treating small fractures in the hand and wrist.

With increased implant strength at a smaller scale and cannulated precision, surgeons can accurately reduce fragments with small diameter K-wires while maintaining positions for single shot insertion of a definitive implant that generates adequate compression to facilitate healing.
