Stryker Orthopaedics Launches the Rejuvenate Modular Primary Hip System

Next Evolution in Hip Replacement Is Designed to Optimize Anatomic Restoration, Will Offer Modular Combinations for Patient's Unique Anatomy

MAHWAH, N.J., Feb. 9 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Stryker Orthopaedics today announced the release of its Rejuvenate Modular Primary Hip System, which is designed to help recreate the anatomy and hip biomechanics of individual patients.

The Rejuvenate Modular Primary Hip System was developed to optimize anatomic restoration by providing options that offer enhanced stability(1), proven modularity(2) and intra-operative flexibility. With a wide range of femoral stem and neck combinations and an extensive range of length, version and offset, the Rejuvenate Modular Primary Hip System is designed to enable surgeons to better personalize the implant to a patient's unique anatomy. By more closely matching the biomechanics of the patient, surgeons may reduce the risk of dislocation and leg length discrepancies, which can be associated with costly hospital readmission and revision surgery(3).

"Every patient's anatomy and lifestyle are different, which is why we have invested in developing cost-effective personalized hip solutions," said Bill Huffnagle, Vice President and General Manager, Hip Reconstruction, Stryker Orthopaedics. "With the Rejuvenate Modular Primary Hip System, patients can rest assured that their surgeons have the equipment to help them more closely match their specific biomechanical needs."

The Rejuvenate Modular Primary Hip System's modular implant design accommodates most well-established surgical approaches and helps to promote intraoperative efficiency and flexibility. Further, the instrumentation used in conjunction with the Rejuvenate Modular Primary Hip System is designed with enhanced ergonomics and can more easily be integrated with Stryker's current navigation technology, thereby having the potential to streamline surgical workflow.
