Hallux Rigidus: Cheilectomy, bunions, past traumas and other 1st MPJ pathologies often present with lesions of the 1st metatarsal head or proximal phalanx. S-Core® targets those defects and provides a functionally anatomic reconstruction of the entire osteochondral unit.
Freiberg's Infraction & AVN of the Lesser Metatarsals: Treatment options include osteotomy or excision of met head among others. S-Core® allows surgeon to decompress the diseased bone and insert implant to stabilize the bone. Similar to Rebar in concrete. Patients can weight bear and mobilize immediately.
Talus: Talar dome lesions have been shown to be high frequency in patients with past fractures or history of ankle sprains. S-Core® can be implanted both arthroscopically and open depending on lesion location. Minimally invasive bone preparation followed by insertion of the S-Core® platform technology stabilizes the subchondral bone and is a platform for graft augmentation, providing immediate time zero fixation and can enable weight bearing immediately.
