DJO Global’s Surgical Division Announces Introduction of Turon(TM) Modular Shoulder System for Shoulder Joint Replacement SurgerySAN DIEGO--(Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network)-- DJO Global, Inc., a global provider of medical device solutions for musculoskeletal health, vascular health and pain management, today announced the introduction of the Turon™ Modular Shoulder System developed by the Company’s surgical division, DJO Surgical. The Turon is the first total shoulder system to incorporate the company’s proprietary IMIN™ (Intrinsic Modular Indexable Neck) technology, a patented clocking feature that provides the ability to dial in the humeral neck shaft angle position. This allows the surgeon to fit the patient’s anatomy without the need for adjunctive screw fixation and complex jigs and back table fixtures.
Richard J. Hawkins, MD, renowned orthopedic shoulder surgeon at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas in Greenville, SC, commented, “The Turon IMIN system is quite simple and elegant. It allows us to dial in the humeral neck angle and set it in situ. Along with the modularity in different humeral head and glenoid sizes, the Turon shoulder enables us to achieve a more anatomic fit and thus better outcomes for our patients. I am pleased to have helped develop this system.”
“We are very excited about our new Turon modular shoulder,” said Mike Mogul, chief executive officer of DJO Global. “The addition of Turon along with our industry-changing Reverse® Shoulder Prosthesis demonstrates our leadership and commitment to move orthopedic technology forward in shoulder replacement surgery.”
