Zimmer, a manufacturer of orthopaedic prosthetics, will air an OR-Live webcast on March 12th at 7:00pm featuring the new Zimmer® M/L Taper Hip Prosthesis with Kinectiv Technology. Dr. John Maltry of Tucson Orthopaedics Institute performs the minimally invasive hip procedure with moderating assistance from Dr. Audrey Tsao of Sun Valley Orthopaedics. This webcast will train surgeons on the safe and effective use of the M/L Taper Kinectiv stem.
Restoring leg length, joint stability, and range of motion involve distinct and separate surgical challenges. The Zimmer M/L Taper Hip Prosthesis with Kinectiv Technology is a system of modular stem and neck components designed to help the surgeon restore the hip joint center intraoperatively by addressing leg length, offset, and version independently. “This system offers the neck variability needed for straight, anteverted and retroverted measurements as well as offset options,” says Dr. John Maltry. The implement also allows surgeons to independently adjust leg length and offset intraoperatively. “You can place stem position within the femoral canal and then independently adjust your Varus, Valgus and offset positions,” adds Dr. Tsao. Viewers will be able to participate in a live email forum during the webcast. Dr. Maltry will answer pertinent questions about the implants and the procedure.
Those interested in participating live can also receive an e-mail or text message reminder about the event by going to the webcast site and selecting the reminder option.
