Unlike traditional stems, the Neck Preserving Stem was designed to conserve more bone.
- A conservative treatment option, designed for maintaining the maximum amount of proximal femoral bone.1
- Achieving initial stability is important to enable biologic fixation.2
- With a curved geometry and broach-only system, the implant is designed to preserve host bone and follow the native anatomy.
