UTS™ Stem

UTS™ Stem

Overview

The UTS™ hip stem - ideal for the direct anterior approach for total hip replacement - is a tapered wedge short stem suitable for less invasive primary hip replacement surgery. It is designed for easier insertion through smaller incisions and requires simpler femoral preparation, enabling rapid recovery. Shorter stems help to preserve bone and allow for more favorable conditions in future revisions.

The UTS™ hip stem is available in 14 refined proximal sizes. It is designed for easier insertion through a minimally invasive incision and allows for simpler femoral preparation enabling rapid recovery. Its features include:


  • 1 12/14 Neck Taper — accommodates a complete selection of femoral heads

  • 2 Triple Taper Design — helps to ensure primary fixation while providing rotational stability

  • 3 Standard and High Offsets — provides anatomical offset options to facilitate soft-tissue tensioning and restore joint mechanics

  • 4 Bone Preservation — low profile and shorter length designs helps bone conservation both in greater trochanter and distal canal

  • 5 Refined Proximal Size — Consistent 1.5 mm increments in proximal width enables surgeons to properly size the implant

  • 6 Stem Flutes — provides channel for blood flow and debris while reducing stem stiffness
