With over 500,000 stems successfully implanted since 1997, SYNERGY Hip System has been one of the fastest growing hips in orthopaedics.
Why? Because SYNERGY is a complete system, with state-of-the-art options, that utilizes simple, efficient instrumentation.
Features and Benefits
The SYNERGY Hip System provides you a complete range of options to match your patients’ needs. The implants include solutions for:
• Fracture management cases-CONQUEST FX
Each of these options uses the same surgical technique and the same two trays of surgical instruments.
The SYNERGY Hip System gets initial stability through three-point fixation:
• posterior proximal
• anterior midway
• posterior distal
Synergy is a bonded system approach and can be used with or without cement. This versatile system allows you to use one set of instrumentation.
Note: CONQUEST FX is a low demand, fracture management option that is implanted with the SYNERGY instruments. This option can be press-fit or cemented.
Design and Technology
SYNERGY Hip System incorporates successful Smith & Nephew design features including unique neck geometry and dual progressive offsets.
• Standard and high offset designs
• Threaded driving platform with an elliptical slot
• Improved neck geometry
• Recommended head/neck ratio
• No unnecessary anteversion
• Optimized 12/14 taper
Superior range of motion
Thecirculotrapezoidal neck and optimized 12/14 taper designs of SYNERGY stems provide increased range of motion (ROM) compared to other designs.
All of the stems in the SYNERGY system (cemented and cementless) use the same 2 trays of instrumentation. The simple ream-and-broach system provides operating room efficiency: ream to a 14, broach to a 14, implant a 14 stem.
• Locking broach handles
• Few trial necks required
• A variety of trial heads
• Rigid stem inserter
• Easy-to-use anteversion handle
