Smith & Nephew, a global medical technology business, unveiled its new Revision Acetabular Fully Porous Cup (REDAPT) with CONCELOC Technology at American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) annual meeting this week in Orlando, FL.

Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush hip and knee reconstruction and replacement orthopedic surgeon Craig Della Valle, M.D. participated as part of the surgeon design team for the new REDAPT cup. "This fully porous cup gives surgeons the flexibility in ways that simply weren't possible before," said Dr. Della Valle. "The locking screws, screw-in trials, purpose-built liners and screw hole patterns optimized for hard-to-access areas really set it apart during a revision procedure. This cup builds on good technology and turns it into something spectacular," he added.
