Integrated fixation can eliminate the need for expensive plates and screws, saving patients thousands of dollars per procedure. Surgeons work with a design engineer from Kelyniam to place the fixation tabs exactly where they are needed, which also facilitates surgical planning.

Fewer plates and screws can also result in a more aesthetically elegant fit for the patient.
