Coming in 2020

In July of 2012, UAT implanted the worlds first fully ceramic permanent interphalangeal implant in to a patient. Five years later the implant remains intact, uncompromised with the patient having improved painfree mobility of the digit. UAT intends to proceed with a FDA 510(k) approval process in the first quarter of 2018 with the anticipation of the product being approved and in the market place by 2020.
