Warsaw-based OrthoPediatrics Corp. (Nasdaq: KIDS) has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its newest surgical system. The company says the RESPONSE System is designed to treat smaller stature young patients with complex scoliosis.
OrthoPediatrics says the 510(k) clearance from the FDA will allow it to launch the surgical system in the fourth quarter. The RESPONSE 4.5/5.0mm System allows physicians to better treat smaller statures and patients at a younger age, according to OrthoPediatrics Executive Vice President David Bailey.
"Our engineering teams have been diligently working with a prominent group of surgeons, and we are excited to bring their innovative vision to life with another surgical solution for treating complex pediatric scoliosis," said Bailey. "The addition of the new system to our scoliosis platform continues to demonstrate OrthoPediatrics’ focus and commitment to providing solutions for children with complex spinal disorders."
