Since the first surgery in January 1997 the OrthoPilot® has become a leading navigation system for orthopaedic navigation with more than 900 units in 41 countries. Today more than 1,500 surgeons world-wide use the OrthoPilot® navigation system in their daily routine. So far more than 300,000 surgeries have been accomplished. More than 300 studies have proven the effectiveness of the method.

Full control. In real time.

Technology assists us everywhere. And we know how to use it intelligently. Smart devices navigate us efficiently through our everyday lives. We choose the route and the destination.
In surgery, precise goal achievement, performance, and real-time information are crucial to the success of the operation. OrthoPilot® Elite gives surgeons exact, continuous feedback on implant and instrument positions. So you can make the right decisions based on even more solid information.

Technology creates a solid foundation. The surgeon makes the difference.

A new surgical experience

OrthoPilot® Elite is part of an integrated system. The surgeon is the heart of that system. OrthoPilot® Elite puts surgeons in the control center of an integrated, perfectly coordinated endoprosthesis system.
