The human bone material from which the Shark Screw® graft is made is recognized, accepted and converted into its own bone by the body. Renouncing metal or absorbable materials such as polylactide minimizes complications, inflammation and irritation; the bone can heal faster and with less pain. For patients, this means significant relief, a more comfortable healing process and shorter, professional downtime.
In the case of disorders or pain caused by bone fracture, bone malposition, rheumatic disease, joint wear on the hand or foot and pseudoarthrosis, treatment with the Shark Screw® graft should be considered. It is therefore advisable to address this topic with your doctor in order to find the best solution for you.
