The Zimmer Biomet Intramedullary (IM) Bone Saw is an exclusive instrument that is designed to efficiently correct rotational discrepancies in the femur with a closed intramedullary rotational osteotomy. Early detection and correction of rotational discrepancies is important because excessive anteversion or retroversion of the femur can result in bony impingement and damage to the soft tissue of the hip.
The IM Bone Saw is designed to allow surgeons to:
- Perform procedure using only a small incision
- Minimally invasive technique that reduces the need for the traditional full exposure of the proximal femur
- Reduce the risk of soft tissue damage
- IM Bone Saw uses the same entrance as IM Nail Procedure
