Harvard Healthcare launches single-use hip arthroscopy instruments
11 Nov 2010
Harvard Healthcare will be unveiling their first single-use hip arthroscopy access system at MEDICA 2010, together with a unique range of handheld disposable arthroscopic/ endoscopic instruments.
With hip arthroscopy surgery growing at a major rate across the globe, Harvard Healthcare’s innovative product range is at the forefront of the sector; with their keyhole surgery system offering an alternative and less painful option for patients over open invasive surgery.
Developed in collaboration with a leading international hip
arthroscopist, the complete single-use hip access system provides
easy access into the joint, eliminating the need for costly reusable
hip arthroscopy instruments and reduces the problems and infection
risks associated with cleaning and re-sterilising narrow lumen
Harvard’s disposable hand-held instrument range will also be
showcased at the event. Replacing traditional scissor-handle style
devices, Harvard’s products offer a pen-like alternative, including
a squeezable grip option — affording the surgeon a more precise,
ergonomic and intuitive solution.
