DALLAS, TEXAS, USA, May 24, 2017 / — Gramercy Extremity Orthopedics (GEO) is pleased to announce the first surgery using the GEO™ Bone Screw and GEO CART™ systems. The first surgery was performed by Dr. Peter A. Blume, D.P.M., F.A.C.F.A.S. at Shoreline Surgery Center LLC, Guilford, CT, with outstanding results. As the first offering in the company’s product line, this marks a major milestone for Gramercy Extremity Orthopedics™.

Dr. Blume remarked on the advantages of the GEO™ Bone Screw and GEO CART™ Systems, “I was extremely impressed and pleased with the outcome when utilizing the GEO™ Bone Screw and GEO CART™ systems. The ease in which the system operated was noted by the entire Surgical Center staff and felt that the systems created many efficiencies that are lacking in today’s operating environment. The surgical back table was free of clutter and the implant and instruments were truly best of class. The GEO CART™ finally addresses all the pitfalls when operating with orthopedic hardware, whether it be at the Surgery Center or in the hospital setting.”

The GEO CART™ proprietary point-of-sale system reduces delays in surgery, decreases sterility risks to the patient, eliminates billing mistakes and hand written forms, automatically generates the Implant Usage Form and reduces facility operating expenses.

The GEO CART™ is a computerized mobile implant and instrumentation inventory system based on RFID technology. No bigger than the average medical cart, the GEO CART™ system can hold over 2,000+ items.

The GEO™ Bone Screw System offers a comprehensive array of low profile titanium screw lengths, diameters, thread lengths and fully threaded options. All GEO™ Bone Screws are double sterile packaged, self-drilling, self-tapping, reverse-cutting with variable length short and long threads and a hexalobe head to provide additional stability and torque transfer with less potential for head stripping. All instruments within the GEO™ Bone Screw system are also double sterile packaged in single use kits to ensure a new and sterilized instrument is used every surgery.

“We are all very pleased with the results from today’s surgery. Not only did the implant and instruments all work superbly, the case was performed without issue and in an efficient manner,” says Michael P. Simpson, President and CEO of Gramercy Extremity Orthopedics™. “As for the GEO CART™, in my 16 years in orthopedic medical devices, I have never had the ability to see the transactions remotely from a case within minutes of the surgery happening. This is a significant breakthrough in our industry. I want to thank the GEO™ team for all of their hard work in getting this system to the marketplace”

GEO™ will be exhibiting at the AOFAS Scientific Conference, Seattle, July 12-14, 2017. Booth #610.
