Norristown, PA (USA) April 29, 2019
Maxx Orthopedics, Inc. a subsidiary of Maxx Medical, Pvt. Ltd., a rapidly expanding global orthopedics device company, announced today the successful first surgery with its new Libertas® Hip System. The Libertas® Total Hip System offers a comprehensive range of modular implants that facilitates stable restoration of hip biomechanics across a varied range of patient demographics. The implants are designed to provide immediate mechanical stability while preserving bone. Longer term stability is aided by the advanced coatings on the implant surfaces which are designed for biological integration of the bone. The overall design geometry of the implants facilitates a congruent transfer of the weight load and restoring the range of motion. Dr. Sridhar Durbhakula of OrthoBethesda, in Bethesda, MD, performed the first case. He reports, “I couldn’t be more excited about the new Libertas® Hip offered by Maxx Orthopedics. The instrumentation is efficient and allows minimally invasive exposure for a perfect clinical result. The implant technology has a proven track record. I am looking forward to help refine the instrumentation and to help expand the hip implant portfolio to offer the most comprehensive THA product line available.” The system comprises of both cemented and cementless femoral stems, cementless acetabular cups designed to be used with highly crosslinked polyethylene modular liners and a choice of either Biolox® delta or cobalt chrome head options in multiple head diameters and offset options. The range of component and size options enables surgeons to provide patients with a robust hip arthroplasty solution without compromise. “This marks a new milestone for us as we make our entry into the total hip replacement market with the Libertas® System and continue to develop innovative products and solutions that help restore mobility for patients. This is just the beginning as we are currently focused on developing a comprehensive hip portfolio featuring new options for stems, liners, and cups to complement our full range of Freedom® Knee implant solutions” says Anand Bala, VP of Product for Maxx Orthopedics. “The Libertas® Total Hip System shows our commitment to create and expand our product portfolio to provide patients and medical professionals with exceptional and repeatable results.” The Libertas® Total Hip System is available in the United States.
