Gramercy Extremity Orthopedics® implants its first GEO FirstFUSE MTPJ Fusion Plate.

RICHARDSON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, October 13, 2020 / -- Gramercy Extremity Orthopedics® (GEO) today announced it has successfully implanted its first GEO FirstFUSE MTPJ Fusion Plating System construct. The surgery was performed by Dr. Stephen Schroeder of Portland, Oregon.
“GEO does an amazing job of creating innovative products and innovating the way they are brought to market,” Dr. Schroeder observed. “The FirstFUSE plating system was solid, anatomic, and incredibly easy to use. The instruments were intuitive and the perioperative team at the surgery center loved the sterile, single-use delivery model.”
“With MTP fusion being one of the highest volume elective cases in the foot & ankle call pattern, we are excited to leverage the GEO technology to deliver solutions for complex reconstruction in a safe, sterile manner,” stated Scott Day, GEO’s Chief Commercial Officer. “Delivery is only one piece, however. FirstFUSE’s size, abduction, and dorsiflexion options make the plating system an attractive clinical solution for discerning surgeons.”
Similar to other implant solutions in the GEO portfolio, the plates and screws of this new plating system are individually sterile-packed, complimented by a single-use, disposable instrument kit.
The GEO FirstFUSE System offers an array of plate size options (small, medium, and large), dorsiflexion (0° or 5°), and abduction (0° or 5°). All plates will accommodate an assortment of cortical locking, as well as cortical and cancellous non-locking, screws to ensure a strong, stable construct.
