Orthopaedic Implants & Instruments

Orthopaedic implants are devices used to replace or facilitate fixation of bone or to replace articulating surfaces of a joint. In other words, orthopaedic implants are used to replace damaged or troubled joints. These orthopaedic implants are generally made with stainless steel or titanium alloys for strength and each orthopaedic implant is designed to correct the affected joint so that it withstand the movement and stress associated and to enhance mobility and decrease painThe orthopaedic surgeries involving fixing of implant are performed by highly specialized and trained surgeons. The surgical procedures for each implant involves removal of the damaged joint and an artificial prosthesis replacement.
