For Hospitals

Surgical complications during hip replacement procedures can lead to premature revision surgery, non-surgical corrective measures, extended hospital stays and litigation. PelvAssist™, in development by Avenir Medical, can reduce implant alignment surgical complications, thereby saving money. Unlike traditional navigation systems, PelvAssist™ is cost-effective, quick, and easy to use by surgeons.

Every year, thousands of hip replacement recipients suffer from surgical complications, often due to component alignment. For example, studies have shown that 3% of primary hip replacements and 10% of revisions suffer from dislocation within 3 months of surgery [1].

Why Premature Revision Hurts

  • Revision hip surgery is far more costly than primary hip surgery [2]

  • Operating rooms are typically booked longer for revision procedures

  • Corrective revision may result in litigation

How PelvAssist™ Helps

  • Improved surgical precision means better reputation

  • Available at a low cost, without high capital expenditures

  • Designed to fit into normal hospital operating procedures

Additional Benefits

  • Electronic record keeping

  • Logged data can be used for academic studies
