The BioPro Modular Thumb Implant incorporates two important features for an anatomically correct fit
The medial offset head aligns with the true center of the trapezium, ensuring proper joint alignment. The 15 degree varus angle stem allows the head to maintain good contact with ht socket during flexion or opposition, minimizing chances of dislocation.
Dr. Badia, founder of the Badia Hand to Shoulder Center in Doral, Florida, and of OrthoNOW® Doral Immediate Orthopedic Care Center, continues to educate both patients and other physicians about alternatives available for better treatments.
Rather than standard one-piece CMC implant designs, the BioPro® Modular Thumb Implant offers a modular, two-piece design to better match patient’s anatomy.
