  2. Feasibility of Non-surgical Implant Adjustment

    SBC: Apto Orthopaedics Corportation            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): While minimally invasive surgery has transformed the practice of surgery, access to implants for removal or alteration still requires surgery which generates risk and high cost. A next-generation approach is non-invasive, where implants are adjusted without an incision. There are clear applications in all fields of surgery, but particulary in orthopaedics wher ...
