OssAbility Stifle System
The OssAbility Stifle System helps general practitioners and veterinary surgeons to treat lameness associated with canine cranial ligament disease. Designed as a series of steps, our OssAbility Stifle System helps you to plan and perform surgery using clever instrumentation and clinical support.
You can expect fewer complications, faster convalescence, and better patient outcomes. Follow the steps and watch your patients walk out of the surgery.
Attend our Workshop to learn how to use the OssAbility Stifle System. The hands-on experience you gain at our Workshop is the best way to reduce your learning curve. You’ll get one-on-one assistance from expert tutors and meet the specialists that will support each of your cases back at your clinic.
Send us your patient’s x-rays and together we will create the right surgical plan. We provide you with a written report with a specialist veterinarian opinion and help you discuss the surgery with the owner. You can configure your Osteotomy Guide before surgery based on your plan.
Set up the Osteotomy Guide for each patient. The clever instruments control where you drill and cut, so the osteotomy and Wedge Implant are always in the right place. The Osteotomy Guide allows you to control the thickness of the tibial crest and the ensures you have enough bone stock. You can feel confident the osteotomy will end up in the right place, without unwelcome surprises on your post-op x-rays.
Our Wedge Implants are unique, but what matters most is that your patients will heal quickly. We use certified industrial 3D printing to manufacture our Wedge Implants. The porous scaffold encourages rapid bone ingrowth within weeks. The inherent flexibility promotes bone health over time. We make all our implants from biocompatible titanium that allows for direct bone to implant contact, without an intervening fibrous layer.
An opening wedge osteotomy and tension band plate act together to reduce the bone onto the Wedge Implant. The surgical approach maintains essential blood supply. The final mechanical construct resists forces in tension, rotation, and bending. The construct is stable, so your patient can get active sooner, encouraging natural healing.
We offer you specialist backed support every step of the way. Before surgery, let us help you create the perfect surgical plan. After surgery, we can provide you with valuable feedback. We will even check up on you down the track to ensure your patient is recovering well and help get them back to full function.
Research helps us treat patients better. We analyse every case you send us and use that information to paint an up-to-the-minute picture of how your treatments are benefiting patients. Your involvement in clinical research enables us to provide evidence-based medicine and systems. We are committed to publishing our outcomes in the best interests of the patients.
