Marking a new beginning for Hip Replacement patients in India, a new class of prosthesis which anchors the stem used in Hip Replacement was introduced at an Orthopaedic workshop at Escorts Hospital today. The new prosthesis with screw anchorage is designed to provide for immediate stability for patients undergoing Hip Replacement. The first ever implant with stem anchorage was done by Dr. Naveen Talwar, Senior Consultant- Orthopedics, Fortis Group of Hospitals today. Developed by SCYON Othopaedics AG, Switzerland, the total joint replacement (TJR) stem anchorage implant was demonstrated at the workshop to doctors across India. SCYON’s TJR stem anchorage is inspired by the observations from the extensive experimental studies of plates and screws for treatment of bone fractures carried out by Dr Tepic and his collaborators at the AO Research Institute in Davos. Conventional total hip replacement (THR) stems tend to become loose against the bone in a while. SCYON’s TJR stem anchorage has the stem with the screws firmly locked in it and it solidly fixes to the bone to provide enhanced stability. With Dr. Naveen Talwar and Dr. Slobodan Tepic, CEO and CTO at SCYON Othopaedics, who has over 30 international patents, and Dr Andrew Hodge, MD with over 10,000 total joint replacements to his credit conducted the workshop to discuss the new class of prosthesis anchors and its use in Hip Replacement.
