Locking Cage™- Revision Acetabular Hip System
Dear United Colleagues,
This month we are highlighting a ‘hidden gem’ that already exists in your United Orthopedic sales bag, one we rarely focus on from a corporate perspective, the United Locking Cage™. This acetabular hip system is used for revision hip arthroplasty, trauma, and other indications where the patient presents with severe acetabulum deficiency and this type of device is required to reconstruct the acetabular structure before a joint prosthesis is implanted.
So why are we highlighting the Locking Cage now? There 3 Reasons.
Reason 1. Positive Customer Feedback. Lots of our surgeons use the United Locking Cage on a regular basis and have received positive feedback from them on the value of the system.
Reason 2. High Average Selling Price (ASP). This is a revision implant system for complex procedures and inherently has a higher ASP, so this can quickly add to your commissionable sales.
Reason 3. This is a Door – Opener. The number of implant companies offering this type of system is limited, so this may be an opportunity to provide a differentiated product to get on contract and/or provide a solution that hospital system may have limited options for. Simply said, this may be a way for you to ‘get in the door’.
Next Steps. We want to share more about this opportunity with you! Join us on Wednesday May 24th at 7:00PM EST where we will provide a quick tutorial on the United Locking Cage, how it has been presented to surgeons, how it has been presented to the hospital and had pricing approved and inter-operative tips and technical pearls from our agent partners and corporate colleagues who are supporting this product around the US today.
Please join us to learn more about this opportunity! If you are interested in learning more but cannot attend, please contact your United Orthopedic Area Vice President or Pete Waterman @781.405.9469 or firstname.lastname@example.org anytime. Thank you!
