Precice Max

The Next Evolution in Limb Lengthening Technology

In recent years, the field of limb lengthening has seen significant advancements with the introduction of internal systems that offer greater comfort and quicker recovery times for patients. Among these, the Precice Stryde system stood out for its ability to allow patients to bear their full weight during the lengthening process, marking a significant step forward. However, the journey didn't stop there. With the discontinuation of Precice Stryde, a new chapter in limb lengthening technology is being written with the introduction of Precice Max.

What is Precice Max?

Precice Max represents the latest innovation in internal limb lengthening systems, designed to build upon the successes and learnings from its predecessors, including the Precice Stryde. Developed by NuVasive Specialized Orthopedics, now part of Globus Medical, this system is designed for both adults and children, offering a sophisticated solution for limb lengthening, bone transport, and fracture fixation.

Key Features

  • Enhanced Weight-Bearing Capacity: A standout feature of the Precice Max system is its ability to support full weight-bearing earlier in the recovery process. This advancement is pivotal for patients, as it allows for greater mobility and a quicker return to daily activities while undergoing treatment.

  • Versatile Nail Sizes: Precice Max offers a range of nail sizes—10mm, 11.5mm, 13mm, and 14mm—catering to the unique anatomical requirements of each patient. This customization ensures that each patient receives the most appropriate treatment, enhancing both the safety and effectiveness of the limb lengthening process.

  • FDA Approval and Safety: Precice Max was approved by the FDA in December 2023, confirming its safety and effectiveness for limb lengthening surgeries.

First Operation

Dr. Dror Paley performed the world's first surgery with the Precice Max system on February 26, 2024. As a renowned figure in orthopedic surgery and limb lengthening, and a contributor to the development of Precice Max, Dr. Paley's expertise was pivotal in this initial procedure. This significant event introduces the Precice Max into medical practice, showcasing its potential to enhance orthopedic surgeries. The outcomes of this pioneering operation are eagerly awaited, as they will offer insights into the system's impact on patient care.
