Curved implant for curved bones of the pelvis

The CurvaFix® IM Implant is the first, new intramedullary pelvic trauma technology in 30 years, and is the only device capable of following the natural bone shape and filling the space within the pelvis. Unlike straight screws which can’t follow the natural curvature of intramedullary pathways (limiting use), and bone plates which require an invasive and costly, open surgical procedure, the CurvaFix IM Implant provides a new state-of-the-art option for pelvic fracture repair.

Anticipated benefits of the patented1 CurvaFix solution:


Stronger, more stable fixation

may be achieved by holding fracture alignment with a longer, curved implant


Shorter surgery

may be realized with average procedure time reduced by an hour and saving more than $6,000 compared to bone plates2


Faster recovery

may result from load sharing during bone healing, similar to intramedullary rods3


Better outcomes

may help elderly patients avoid nursing home care by enabling strong fixation in weak bones with minimally invasive surgery4,5
