The Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma Features NuVasive

Check out the June 2017 issue of the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma and you’ll find a feature on our PRECICE® system and PRECICE UNYTE™ platform. Our clinical trials demonstrated that these systems have a lower complication rate, greater patient comfort, and faster healing in comparison to traditional treatments1.

Our PRECICE system has been helping patients across the country who have limb length discrepancy. The device, once implanted, utilizes an External Remote Controller (ERC) to non-invasively lengthen the femur and tibia with precision rate control. Each patient’s lengthening is customized based on a physician directed program.

I’m honored to report on the success of PRECICE UNYTE intramedullary compression implant and share the positive results of our early clinical experience

Stuart Green, M.D.

Our PRECICE UNYTE solution is used for stabilizing and treating difficult to heal fractures. It leverages the proven principles of compression and distraction osteogenesis and uses the ERC magnetic technology to apply non-invasive customized treatment for proper bone healing and restoring natural bone length.

Check out the feature here in the June JOT Supplement, with five articles authored by our surgeon partners Robert Rozbruch, M.D., Mitchell Bernstein, M.D., Stuart Green, M.D., Austin Fragomen, M.D., and Tracy Watson, M.D.

“I’m honored to report on the success of PRECICE UNYTE intramedullary compression implant and share the positive results of our early clinical experience,” said Dr. Green, University of California, Irvine, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. “The future of this technology is clearly evident in the JOT supplement, which highlights the key role engineering research plays in developing medical device innovation. Patients around the globe will greatly benefit from the new technology created by the collaboration effort of NSO and the surgeon community.”
