GAINESVILLE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Exactech, a leading developer and producer of bone and joint restoration products and biologic solutions for extremities, knee and hip, earned the Second Place Best Clinical Podium Presentation Award for one of five new research studies presented on the company’s latest computer guidance technology for knee surgery at the International Society for Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery (CAOS) annual meeting in Beijing, China earlier this month.
The award-winning research demonstrated the potential for ExactechGPS to accurately manage soft tissue balance, bone cuts and overall alignment of the knee in joint replacement surgery.
According to Orthopaedic Surgeon David Liu, MD, of The Gold Coast Centre for Bone & Joint Surgery in Queensland, Australia, “It was an honour to present several studies based on ExactechGPS and to receive this award, along with my co-authors Yifei Dai and Guillaume Bras of Exactech. This scientific meeting is unique in its focus on the role of navigation in orthopaedic surgery. I am confident that this technology plays a major role in the outcomes of joint arthroplasty.”
The five ExactechGPS studies presented at CAOS 2018 add to the more than 20 presented so far this year, including one that was recognized as the 2018 Orthopaedic Research Society’s Best Implant Poster Award.
