Intellijoint Surgical Inc., a privately held Canadian medical technology company committed to developing low-cost, miniaturized surgical smart tools, announced today the commercial launch of its flagship product, intellijoint HIP™, for use by orthopedic surgeons across Canada.

intellijoint HIP is simple, easy to use and provides surgeons with vital intra-operative measurements enabling proper cup position, equalization of leg length and restoration of hip offset.

"intellijoint HIP is a revolutionary smart tool that will make a significant impact on patient outcomes in hip replacement surgery and health care system costs worldwide," said Armen Bakirtzian, Co-Founder and CEO of Intellijoint Surgical. "Use of our device will reduce costly remissions and unnecessary revision surgeries while improving clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction. We are extremely excited for this milestone and the next steps in our company's growth."The company has successfully conducted a limited launch of intellijoint HIP with 200+ live surgeries in the U.S. and Canada performed by select key opinion leading orthopedic surgeons.
