Canadian medical device company, Intellijoint Surgical, has completed 10,000 total hip replacements through its Intellijoint HIP technology.

Three things to know:

1. Intellijoint HIP is a surgeon-controlled navigation system that provides real-time intraoperative measurements for more efficient implant alignment for cup position, leg length and offset.

2. Board-certified orthopedic surgeon, Claudette Lajam, MD, completed the 10,000th surgery at the New York University Langone Orthopedic Hospital in New York City and said, "Seeing the anteversion and inclination measurements during acetabular positioning allows me to deliver reproduceable results."

3. The technology was commercialized in select U.S. cities through a limited market release in 2016 and has since expanded into all of Australia and New Zealand.

"Intellijoint HIP was designed to overcome the challenges of traditional navigation and robotics like size, cost, and complexity, while still providing highly accurate measurements for implant positioning that so many surgeons value," said CEO & Co-founder of Intellijoint Surgical Armen Bakirtzian.
