Company’s partnership with Mighty Oak Medical for 3D printed, patient-specific technology continues advancing pediatric scoliosis treatment
WARSAW, Ind., Feb. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OrthoPediatrics Corp. (“OrthoPediatrics” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: KIDS), a company focused exclusively on advancing the field of pediatric orthopedics, announced the 1,000th case performed with the FIREFLY® Pedicle Screw Navigation Guides (“FIREFLY”) technology in collaboration with Mighty Oak Medical.
FIREFLY, which is frequently used in conjunction with OrthoPediatrics’ RESPONSE™ Spine System, provides increased efficiency by utilizing data-driven, pre-surgical planning for optimizing size and trajectory of the pedicle screws when performing complex spinal surgeries. The 3D printed patient-specific guides reduce the need for intraoperative radiation and make accurate pedicle screw placement more efficient. This easy-to-use technology is a unique and cost-effective alternative to complex and expensive navigation systems. OrthoPediatrics is the exclusive distributor of the FIREFLY technology in children’s hospitals throughout the U.S.
David Bailey, President & CEO of OrthoPediatrics, added, “Our ongoing partnership with Mighty Oak Medical is something we are very proud of, and celebrating 1,000 successful cases is a great milestone!
