OrthoPediatrics Corp., a company focused exclusively on advancing the field of pediatric orthopedics, today announced an exclusive distribution agreement with 3D-Side S.A., a Belgium based software developer and manufacturer of patient specific 3D printed cutting guides.
This commercial agreement grants OrthoPediatrics exclusive distribution rights of the 3D-CUT-OSTEO osteotomy guide in the United States’ leading pediatric hospitals in addition to certain international markets in the future.
3D-CUT patient specific guides, designed from CT or MRI images, assist surgeons performing corrective and bone tumor resection osteotomies. The single use guide technology enables accurate deformity or tumor corrective procedures.
OrthoPediatrics’ President and CEO David Bailey commented, “the 3D-Side technology complements the OrthoPediatrics’ pediatric limb deformity implant and biologic offering, and increases exposure in the pediatric oncology market, where many of the most challenging orthopedic cases involving tumor resection require a full complement of solutions including implants, biologics, and patient specific devices. We are excited to enter this relationship with 3D-Side to provide our pediatric orthopedic customers access to the 3D-CUT products.”
3D-Side Co-CEO, Laurent Paul stated, "Our partnership with OrthoPediatrics is based on a shared mission and commitment to limit the risks involved in surgery on medically challenged young patients. Because each patient is unique, we imagine dedicated solutions to fit their surgical needs. Thanks to the OrthoPediatrics partnership, we are thrilled to expand these well-established products in Europe to the USA and bring our expertise to pediatric orthopedic surgeons in the United States," said Laurent Paul, 3D-Side's Co-CEO.
