Dr. Patrick DeHeer, surgeon pioneer for the CheckMATE® plate commented, "The goal was to design a plate that is low-profile, but strong and rigid, providing the best of both internal and external fixation. This could allow patients to bear weight on their forefoot earlier, and to minimize secondary surgery and hardware irritation. This new plate has incorporated all these elements, making it a very attractive option for surgeons who perform first MTP fusions."
"From a design perspective, our goal is to provide surgeons with complete and innovative solutions that improve upon the standard of care for patients experiencing forefoot arthritis. We want to challenge the status quo and use insights from the clinical data and our developers to make products that are anatomic, joint preserving and quick to implant," said Steve Ek, Founder & CEO. "Arthrosurface is focused on bringing new products to the market that may enhance patient outcomes and potentially provide better options for both surgeons and patients in the extremities market," commented Joseph Darling, Executive Chairman at Arthrosurface, Inc.
