Total Talus Replacement

An alternative treatment option to fusion and amputation, the Paragon 28 Patient Specific Talus Spacer is indicated for avascular necrosis of the ankle and requires total talus replacement surgery.

The procedure is designed to relieve pain and preserve motion in the ankle joint by replacing the patient’s damaged talus with a 3D printed replica of his/her bone. Talus replacement surgery is considered a joint sparing procedure as it allows the patient to retain motion in the ankle joint.

Learn More About The Patient Specific Talus Spacer

The Paragon 28® Patient Specific Talus Spacer has two material options: a cobalt chromium metal alloy and a
titanium alloy with a titanium nitride coating. The Paragon 28 Patient Specific Talus Spacer in cobalt chromium is an additively
manufactured implant made from cobalt chromium metal alloy and produced by laser sintering. 

The Paragon 28 Patient Specific Talus Spacer in titanium alloy is an additively manufactured implant made from titanium alloy with a
titanium nitride coating and produced by electron beam melting. The surgeon selects which material is best suited
for his/her patient. The device allows the patient to regain motion and reduce pain without an amputation or fusion
for the treatment of the current condition.

Testimonials

Innovative Technology, Impacting Lives

"I am a pharmacist and am able to do my job again. After not being able to walk, I can now stand on my feet for 8 hours a day. I have my life back. I am pain-free, very happy, and very blessed to have found my surgeon and this technology."

Michael, Pennsylvania

“After being diagnosed with AVN, I researched possible treatment options. I did not want to have a fusion and lose motion in my ankle. I knew if the AVN progressed, I would lose my leg. I found the surgeon who performed my total talus replacement and have not had any pain since I came out of the hospital. It has been an amazing process. It gave me my mobility back. I can walk, I can run, and I can keep working. AVN is a crippling thing for human life. I was scared I was going to lose my foot, but I now have my life back.”

Gradie, Tennessee

“Flying is a much-loved hobby of mine. When I was recommended to have a fusion I was upset, not just for the loss of ability to work the rudder pedals in my airplane, but for life motion in general. I am so far from where I was. I am doing great. In July of this year, it will be 4 years, and my ankle is doing great. My grandchildren call me their “Bionic Oma”. I can dance and I can fly! What more could a 70 year girl ask for? I am Blessed.”
