Advanced Surgical Treatments

At St. Francis, we use cutting edge implants for the correction of patellar luxation such as RidgeStop from Orthomed in the United Kingdom. RidgeStopTM can be used as a “stand-alone” procedure for less severe cases of patellar luxation – Grade 2 or better. RidgeStopTM may also be used as an adjunct procedure when re-alignment operations such as distal femoral ostectomy or tibial crest translocation have been performed. In such cases, RidgeStopTM acts effectively as an alternative to sulcoplasty procedures.

RidgeStop™ is a product of Orthomed Ltd.
