News: MicroPort Orthopedics Launches Profemur Preserve Hip Stem : Inaugural Surgery Performed by Phillip Merritt, MD

ARLINGTON, Tenn.--()--MicroPort Orthopedics Inc. (“MicroPort Orthopedics”) announced today the launch of the Profemur® Preserve® Hip Stem (“Profemur® Preserve®”), a short stem designed to support today’s growing market of bone and tissue preserving surgical techniques. “As physicians evaluate the landscape of short stems, Profemur® Preserve® is attractively positioned to capture market share,” said Patrick Gregory, Hip Product Manager for MicroPort Orthopedics. Short stems have grown in popularity as physicians give additional consideration to tissue-friendly approaches and ongoing care for a younger patient population. Shorter stems preserve bone, which facilitates future revisions through a wider range of treatment options.
“Managing OR flow and consistency are central initiatives for MicroPort Orthopedics as we bring new products to the market”
Preserve Classic was designed to maximize head center coverage with the fewest number of SKUs resulting in an optimized stem with virtually no technique learning curve. Preserve® Classic and Preserve® Modular are part of MicroPort Orthopedics’ Simply Versatile™ platform which allows surgeons the flexibility of using classic and modular stems utilizing the same surgical technique with a common set of instruments. “Managing OR flow and consistency are central initiatives for MicroPort Orthopedics as we bring new products to the market,” said Gregory.
Performing the first two hip replacement surgeries with Profemur® Preserve® is Dr. Phillip Merritt, Direct Anterior Approach Specialist, Glendale, California.
