Total hip replacement (THR) has been a highly successful procedure for dogs with advanced osteoarthritis since the early 1970’s.
Throughout that time, BioMedtrix developed the most comprehensive veterinary implant systems to assure consistency with contemporary human hip designs which can provide dogs and cats with the same clinical outcome experienced in human THR’s.
