USTARII Hinge Knee & Limb Salvage System

For the latest developments on the full commercial launch of the USTARII Hinge Knee & Limb Salvage System, we invite you to listen to Chapter 1 from the recorded presentation of Early Experience with Next Generation Limb Salvage System, by Ron Hillock, MD.

Dr. Hillock, Chief of Surgery at Centennial Hills Hospital and Medical Center, Las Vegas, NV, is a designer and early adopter of the USTARII system. This 1st of several chapters focusing on USTARII provides an overview of the history of limb salvage implant design including the first generation of United’s USTAR system, as well as a discussion of the evolution of design concepts of and early clinical results with the system.

Future chapters will include an overview of United’s 2nd generation system, USTARII, including early clinical results and some select case studies. Please check out chapter 1, it’s a packed and interesting 5-minute listen.

The U2 Knee System Meets ASC

It’s no secret that more surgeons than ever before want to perform total joint replacement (TJR) procedures in outpatient settings instead of in hospitals. The forecasted number of outpatient TJR procedures is based on the shift from inpatient dominance to outpatient growth. More than one million TJR procedures are performed each year, and that number is expected to grow exponentially, reaching four million by 2030 (see “National Billing Services,,”). A significant percentage of these cases will migrate from inpatient to outpatient settings. To ensure United Orthopedic Corporation continues to be one of the fastest-growing medical device companies in the United States, we have developed a strategic ASC pricing model for our innovative and award-winning U2 knee system – AIO (All-In-One) Femoral Block & MDT (Modular Disposable Trials).

AiO (All-In-One) Femoral Block

The U2 Knee System’s AiO (All-in-One) femoral block enables surgeons to perform key femoral preparation
steps with a single instrument for a faster, more efficient, and precise surgical technique.

  • Supports both anterior and posterior referencing
  • Placed on the resected distal femur
  • Permits internal/external rotation adjustments from 3 to 7° in 1° increment.
  • Allows sizing of all 13 sizes of U2 femoral components
  • Ultra-fine anterior-posterior (A/P) adjustment can be made from -2 mm to +2 mm for allowing for optimal component positioning
  • Used for high-precision anterior and posterior femoral resections
  • Sets the position for the anterior and posterior chamfer resection

Modular Disposable Trials (MDT)

United’s Femoral Trial Set (CR/PS) is comprised of 7 standard sizes plus 6 intermediate sizes, for a total of 13 femoral component selections. Each sterile package includes a CR notch trial & PS box trial to convert the femoral trial component from a CR to a PS design. A disposable PS Notch Cutting Guide is also included.
United’s Tibial Trial Sets (CR/PS or UC) are comprised of 7 sizes of tibial baseplate trials and all thickness selections of inserts. Each sterile package includes the selected tibial baseplate trial, a standard 9 mm articulating surface trial, three 2 mm spacers, and one 3 mm spacer. An additional PS post trial that allows the CR insert trial to be converted to a PS insert trial is also included.
United’s Patellar Trial Set Includes 7 size selections of onset or inset patellar trials.
