Company expands capabilities of its Precision Orthopaedics platform
PARSIPPANY, N.J., July 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Onkos Surgical, a leading innovator of solutions for musculoskeletal oncology and complex orthopaedic procedures, announced its launch of the JTS Extendible Prosthesis, a novel growing implant designed for pediatric patients with bone cancer, and unveiled its new, state-of-the-art manufacturing and R&D innovation center at its Parsippany, NJ headquarters to support the integration and growth of the technology.
The JTS Extendible Prosthesis is a growing implant with a significant body of clinical evidence for pediatric patients with bone cancer. With the use of magnetic technology, the implant expands non-invasively to accommodate the patients natural growth curve, preserving lower limb length equality for young patients with bone loss due to cancer. The addition of the JTS technology expands the company’s access and ability to provide solutions for pediatric patients.

Pediatric sarcoma patients, who are candidates for the JTS growing prosthesis, often have complex treatment cycles in which we need to deliver precision designs in a very specific treatment window. Our investment in manufacturing innovation and design expertise will make a big difference in the future for these surgeons, patients, and families and we couldn’t be more proud to serve their needs.”
“This milestone reflects an exciting evolution for Onkos as the company accelerates our investments to serve the pediatric musculoskeletal oncology space and broaden our Precision Orthopaedics portfolio.
