US-based Ortho Development has expanded its Balanced Knee implant system product line with the introduction of the BKS Uni partial knee replacement system.

The system has been developed to simplify surgical techniques, preserve bone and leverage the Balanced Knee System clinical heritage.

Ortho Development president Brent Bartholomew said: “The launch of BKS Uni builds on Ortho Development’s heritage of evolutionary innovation.

“We’ve created simple, intuitive implants and instruments to aid in streamlining workflow and make a technically demanding surgery more predictable.”

The system offers a medial fixed-bearing system of instruments and implants to surgeons.

These tools are engineered to facilitate intraoperative adjustments, enabling accurate and balanced unicompartmental knee arthritis treatment.

BKS Uni, along with the company’s other Balanced Knee solutions, enables surgeons to treat a range of pathologies, from partial knee replacements to the latest revision procedures using cones and sleeves.

Honolulu’s Straub Medical Center orthopaedic surgeon Dr Cass Nakasone said: “The BKS Uni is an intuitively and instrumentally simple system that allows surgeons to adjust the flexion gap to match the created extension gap or vice versa.

“The simple instrumentation allows surgeons with varying levels of experience with unicondylar knee arthroplasty to achieve efficient and consistent surgical outcomes.”

Ortho Development is focused on designing, manufacturing and distributing orthopaedic implants and related surgical instruments. It mainly focuses on offering total knee and hip joint replacement solutions.
