WARSAW, Ind., May 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OrthoPediatrics Corp. (“OrthoPediatrics” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: KIDS) a company focused exclusively on advancing the field of pediatric orthopedics, today announced the launch of their new Power System for the RESPONSE™ Scoliosis portfolio. The RESPONSE Power System is a complete portfolio of instruments for tapping pedicles, inserting screws, and final tightening of set screws. RESPONSE Power is compatible with OrthoPediatrics’ entire suite of fusion implant systems, including RESPONSE 4.5/5.0and RESPONSE 5.5/6.0 fusion systems, and BandLoc – a sublaminar banding technology. This represents the company’s 49th system for pediatric orthopedic care.
Greg Odle, President of OrthoPediatrics’ Scoliosis business, commented, “Scoliosis procedures are physically demanding for surgeons, and can take a toll on their bodies over time. Our new RESPONSE Power System is designed to provide a more efficient workflow, easier screw insertion, and reduced effort required during final tightening of set screws.”
“The new Power System is a great complement to the RESPONSE Spine portfolio,” said Dr. Timothy Oswald, Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon at Wellstar Pediatric Orthopedic Care in Atlanta. “Being able to efficiently and safely place and secure implants is critical in fusion procedures, and the new Power System instrumentation provides significant value over manual instrumentation to accomplish these steps. One important advantage is the reduced physical demand on surgeons, which may increase our longevity in the OR.”
