Nextra® Hammertoe Correction System
Hammertoes can become extremely painful. The Nextra® Hammertoe Correction System was designed to help reduce your pain and improve your quality of life.1 The Nextra Hammertoe Correction System is the industry’s only adjustable two-piece hammertoe solution. This adjustability helps give your surgeon flexibility during surgery to achieve the desired fit of the implant. It’s designed to aid your toe as the bone fuses together.
Talk to your surgeon about whether hammertoe surgery is right for you and the risks of the procedure, including the risk of implant wear, infection, loosening, breakage or failure, any of which could require additional surgery and whether the implant will be removed after healing.

InCore® Lapidus System
Some surgeons use bone plates and/or bone screws that sit on top of the bone, to hold the bones in place during healing. The InCore® Lapidus System is implanted inside the bone, instead of on top of the bone, which is intended to help minimize soft tissue irritation under your skin.
Correcting the toe’s rotation is also critical for reestablishing alignment, the root cause of your bunion. The InCore Lapidus System is designed to provide your doctor with triplanar correction designed to aid and stabilize your bones in efforts to facilitate and maintain alignment.
Talk to your surgeon about whether bunion surgery is right for you and the risks of the procedure, including the risk of implant wear, infection, loosening, breakage or failure, any of which could require additional surgery.

Trabecular Metal® Total Ankle
Total ankle arthroplasty is intended to provide patients with ankle mobility by reducing pain and preserving the flexion/extension (up and down) movement within the ankle joint.
The Trabecular Metal Total Ankle replacement system is an innovative design intended to replace the arthritic surfaces of the ankle that have been affected by disease.
• The implant has a low-profile design that allows your surgeon to keep more of your natural bone.
• The design provides for integrated movement with the muscles and tendons, intended to help achieve a normal walking gait.
• The Trabecular Metal Total Ankle replacement system offers a number of sizing options, giving your surgeon the ability to choose the closest fit for your ankle anatomy.
Talk to your surgeon about whether total ankle replacement surgery is right for you and the risks of the procedure, including the risk of implant wear, infection, loosening, breakage or failure, any of which could require additional surgery.
