If you need to have a bone related surgery (bunion correction, osteotomy, fracture repair, etc.), your doctor may need to insert one or more metal bone fixation screws to hold the bone in place. In many cases, internal fixation screws are used to help support the bones through the healing process. As bones recover and strength is regained, implanted fixation devices are often no longer needed. But because traditional bone screws were not designed for easy removal, standard practice has been to leave bone screws in the body indefinitely.
Any time unnatural, foreign materials are left inside of the body, the risk of complications increases. Now you have a healthier choice - The SafetyFix EasyOut bone fixation screw.
The innovative EasyOut bone screw was specially designed to be removed quickly and easily, as soon as your bone has sufficiently healed (usually within 4-6 weeks).
By removing the screw, the risk of short- and long-term complications, including health problems from metal toxicity, is greatly reduced.
The patented SafetyFix EasyOut Removable Bone Screw was developed by a team of surgeons to reduce the risk of surgical complications that can result from unnecessary metal in the body.
SafetyFix is the only bone fixation device designed to be easily removed from the body as soon as the bone has properly healed following surgery.
As soon as your bones have sufficiently healed, the EasyOut bone screw can be completely removed from the body. Removal is safe, relatively pain-free, and can be completed in your doctor's office in just a matter of minutes.
The EasyOut screw has been successfully implanted and safely removed with many patients. Choose SafetyFix for your surgery with complete confidence and peace of mind.
The SafetyFix EasyOut screw is fully certified and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The EasyOut screw has received U.S. patent approval for its innovative and effective design. The EasyOut screw is the first and only removable bone fixation device on the market and is only available from SafetyFix Medical Technologies.
Until recently, surgically securing bones with the use of bone fixation screws, meant leaving metal implants inside the patient's body indefinitely. Over time, the metal may corrode and break down inside the body, which can cause short- and long-term surgical complications and health issues, including inflammation, metal toxicity, and a potentially serious and painful condition known as metallosis.
When metal breaks down inside the body, bone, joint and tissue can quickly become contaminated, beginning near the site of the problematic metal object and traveling to distant sites throughout the body as metal fragments and corrosive elements are distributed via the blood, which can cause a wide range of health problems.
Foreign metal in the body can increase joint and tissue inflammation, which can be painful and lead to reduced function and mobility.
Metallosis is a potentially severe medical condition that occurs when metal debris builds up in soft body tissues. Metallosis can cause extreme pain, swelling, inflammation, infections, bone deterioration, dizziness, confusion, headaches, gastrointestinal and neurological problems and other complications.
Metal toxicity can cause changes in tissue structure and cause the body to falsely perceive the damaged tissues as foreign substances, leading to autoimmune attacks and diseases.
The SafetyFix EasyOut Removable Bone Screw can be used for bone fracture repair and other surgical procedures involving the foot, hand, wrist, ankle, elbow and other small bone corrective procedures.
