Onkos Surgical Announces Definitive Agreement to Acquire JTS Expandable Prosthesis
The company is expanding its musculoskeletal oncology portfolio with device for treating pediatric bone cancer
PARSIPPANY, NJ, June 14, 2022 /OrthoSpineNews/ — Onkos Surgical, Inc., a rapidly growing, leading innovator of solutions for musculoskeletal oncology and complex orthopedic conditions, today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Stryker to acquire the Juvenile Tumor System (JTS ). The system provides limb stabilization and growth in pediatric patients with bone cancers, severe arthropathies, severe trauma, revisions, oncology and malignancies.
Onkos is a MedTech company specializing in the development of solutions for surgeons specializing in musculoskeletal oncology and other complex orthopedic conditions.
The JTS is a device that allows non-invasive lengthening of the post-operative implant over time in a clinical setting. The design eliminates the need for multiple lengthening, anesthesia or sedation surgeries, and therefore helps reduce the risk of complications and costs associated with limb reconstruction surgery.
“This is an important day for Onkos Surgical and the musculoskeletal oncology community,” said Patrick Treacy, co-founder and CEO. “Our ‘Why’ has always driven us to specifically address the many clinical challenges this community of surgeons and patients face on a daily basis. Pediatric cancer surgery and limb lengthening are complex and difficult procedures, and the JTS expandable prosthesis is a solution in service of this mission. We are committed to being good stewards of technology. We are proud to partner with this community of dedicated surgeons and excited to create a bright future for technology as we continue this meaningful work for pediatric patients with musculoskeletal cancer.
