USTARII Hinge Knee System
United Orthopedic is excited to share the design rationale and early experience feedback on using the USTARII Hinge Knee System provided to us by Dr. Mark Tuttle, Colorado Limb Consultants/OrthoONE, Denver, CO. Dr. Tuttle is an early clinical evaluator of this system and his insights are valuable.
The Conformity Stem platform provides a comprehensive stem solution to hip arthroplasty surgery. Conformity is available in 77 stem options with 155μm of fully-hydroxyapatite (HA) coating, multiple neck options, collared and collarless features, and cementless and cemented options.
Conformity’s design is based upon the widely accepted HA-coated stem design, which is well documented to facilitate stem fixation, stability, and longevity. The system is designed to help address deficiencies of other systems currently on the market.
