Intellijoint Surgical's core technology represents the latest in miniature 3D surgical measurement within the sterile field -- intellijoint HIP can improve accuracy in achieving preoperative planned targets, ultimately improving patient satisfaction and healthcare economics
MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the hip replacement market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Intellijoint Surgical with the 2015 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Enabling Technology Leadership. Intellijoint Surgical's flagship product, intellijoint HIP™, can greatly increase the success rates of hip replacement procedures by providing orthopedic surgeons with real-time data measurements of cup position, leg length, and offset intraoperatively. Accurate implant selection and alignment improves patients' outcomes and reduces overall treatment costs.
"intellijoint HIP™, incorporates Intellijoint Surgical's proprietary core technology, a miniaturized 3D surgical measurement system placed within the sterile field that provides surgeons with accurate measurements in real-time," said Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Director, Tonya Fowler. "The data assists surgeons in selecting the best-fitting implant for the patient and helps align the implant in the desired location that is critical for a successful surgical outcome."
Orthopedic surgeons are equipped with preoperative images of the patient's hip, but these images are only useful in helping the surgeon create a preoperative plan, not execute it. intellijoint HIP™ provides surgeons with 3D information intraoperatively, helping them with proper implant selection, positioning, and alignment that ultimately improves accuracy in achieving preoperative targets.
Aided by intellijoint HIP™, orthopedic surgeons no longer have to 'eye ball' or manually position hip implants, as the device enhances placement precision and minimizes the risk of joint instability, which can lead to additional negative consequences for the patient such as dislocation and leg length discrepancy. intellijoint HIP is safe, fast, accurate and seamlessly integrates with surgeons' workflows. It is affordable and does not impact operating room time. Additionally, intellijoint HIP™ gives surgeons greater confidence to recommend hip replacement surgery, as the risk for revision hip surgery may be lowered.
Intellijoint Surgical is aware of the huge capital expenses hospitals incur in surgical procedures and, as such, the company does not demand a large upfront capital investment for intellijoint HIP™. Intellijoint Surgical has a pay-per-use model, with manageable fees that do not require C-level executive approvals. The approvals can be obtained from the Operating Room Manager.
"Intellijoint Surgical has demonstrated the long-term viability and impact of its core technology through its innovative new product in hip replacement. It is a great pleasure to recognize Intellijoint Surgical for developing a technology that allows all orthopedic surgeons to benefit from computer-assisted surgery and deliver improved outcomes for their patients," said Krishna Srinivasan, global president and managing partner, Frost & Sullivan.
For its utility in enhancing the efficiency of orthopedic surgeries and reducing hospital costs, Frost & Sullivan is pleased to present Intellijoint Surgical with the 2015 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Enabling Technology Leadership.
