Maintain metatarsal length
Shorten a long metatarsal
Lengthen a short metatarsal
1 mm thin yet provides maximum stability
6 points of locking screw fixation – 3 proximal and 3 distal
Medical grade titanium
Address the apex of the 1st ray deformity
Reduces the rate of recurrence
By addressing the apex of deformity there is a reduced chance of recurrence.
The thin plate reduces the need for device removal.
Locking screws reduce the need for screw removal.
Increased stability may reduce the period of non-weightbearing.
Decreased chance of additional surgical procedures since osteo-WEDGETM maintains or reestablishes
the metatarsal parabola and corrects both transverse and sagittal plane deformities.
By addressing the apex of deformity there is a reduced chance of recurrence, the cost of revision bunion surgery
is > $10,000.00 (hospital, anesthesia and surgeon fees.)
The thin plate reduces the need for device removal, typical costs associated with taking a patient back to surgery
to remove painful internal hardware range from $5k to $7k (hospital, anesthesia and surgeon fees.)
Decrease the chance of additional surgical procedures. By maintaining the metatarsal parabola there won’t be a
need to perform additional metatarsal osteotomies that will require additional internal fixation.
