Ascension Orthopedics, a provider in orthopedic extremity implants, has expanded the Movement Great Toe Implant System to include a total arthroplasty component.

The toe arthroplasty system allows surgeons the intra-operative choice to perform hemi-resurfacing for either side of the joint or total joint replacement in one instrument set.

The Movement Great Toe System provides cannulated instrumentation for ease of use and utilizes a conical reaming approach for minimal bone resection and retention of plantar soft tissue attachments.

Ascension Orthopedics president and CEO Guy Mayer said the expansion of the Movement Great Toe System to include a total arthroplasty device demonstrates the company’s leadership role in extremity orthopedics and highlights their commitment to provide innovative solutions for the specific challenges faced by foot and ankle surgeons.
