A company that already champions a range of cutting-edge joint replacement implants, Microport® Orthopedics, recently launched its Evolution® NitrX™ Medial-Pivot Knee System to further speed up recovery time and help patients achieve full function faster.
Specifically, the Evolution® NitrX™ Medial-Pivot Knee features a titanium nobium nitride coating which is known to build upon the medial-pivot legacy patient satisfaction rate of 95 per cent, with 98.8 per cent survivorship at 17 years.
Russell Nevins MD, a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon at Desert Orthopedic Center in Las Vegas, said: “I see a dramatic difference in patients treated with the Evolution® Medial-Pivot Knee in terms of pain and recovery. When I see these patients at four or six weeks, they’re just at a different stage of recovery than I was seeing with my previous patients treated with traditional implants.
“With the Evolution® NitrX™ knee, we now have the ability to deliver the benefit of the medial-pivot design to a broader array of patients.”
Founded in 2014, Microport Orthopedics has expanded its operations and services to patients and doctors in over 60 countries across the world, including in the EMEA, Latin American, Japanese and Chinese markets.
The new product is expected to bolster doctors’ facilities across the world and improve the opportunities available to patients in their recovery periods after orthopaedic surgeries.
