Anatomical site: Femur and tibia
Procedure: Limb Lengthening
The FITBONE® intramedullary limb-lengthening system was developed in partnership with Professor Baumgart. The product was launched in 1997. Since then, this innovative treatment concept has grown into a global success story. The FITBONE TAA intramedullary lengthening system is intended for limb lengthening of the femur and tibia. With appropriate preoperative planning, it is possible to make axial and torsional corrections as part of limb lengthening.
Reliability / Quality / Experience: Several thousand implants since 1997.
