Revolutionary New Treatment Option
The MICRONAIL® Fixation implant is the first and only implant of its kind available in the United States. It allows patients to start using their wrists within one to two weeks in a limited way, whereas traditional treatment methods may immobilize the wrist for four to twelve weeks. (Source: CORR, April 2006).
With MICRONAIL® Fixation, surgeons can treat a broken wrist through a unique, minimally-invasive surgical technique. The MICRONAIL® implant is placed inside the patient's fractured wrist bone (the radius) through two small, 1-inch incisions on the side of the wrist.
These small incisions help to reduce the soft tissue damage caused by traditional surgical repair treatments, which can result in a faster, less painful recovery.
