LONDON – Computer-assisted surgery company The Acrobot Co. Ltd. said Tuesday it signed an agreement with Finsbury Orthopedics Ltd. to market its Navigator system alongside Finsbury’s Adept hip resurfacing product. The two products will be marketed together to hospitals, Acrobot said. Navigator enables surgeons to place the components used in hip resurfacing more accurately, which can reduce wear and make the implant last longer.
Hip resurfacing is a procedure designed to spare more bone than traditional hip replacements.
