Total Joint Orthopedics makes high-quality, efficient implants for hip and knee replacement. Our streamlined instrumentation is intuitive and easy to use for reproducible results.
The Klassic® Femur with Aurum® Technology features the same patented geometry and articulation as the Klassic® Femur and offers a revolutionary ballistically bonded titanium nitride (TiN) surface to provide a premium implant without the deliberate addition of common metal sensitizers such as nickel, cobalt, and chromium.
Aurum® is the first step as part of TJO’s multiyear plan to reduce the use of Cobalt Chrome in orthopedic implants; it uses a patented ion beam enhanced deposition (IBED) process to create a well-structured, ceramicized surface layer that is interdigitated with the substrate while preserving the material and geometric properties of the implant.
Titanium is up to 50% lighter than cobalt chrome, and the Aurum® Femur offers an implant that more closely replicates the weight of native bone.
"I was first attracted to TJO because of their affiliation with Operation Walk. The fact that they have made contributing implants to these missions a main part of their business model was very important to me. As co-leader of Operation Walk Virginia, I've been faced with the challenge of procuring implants for our missions, and knowing TJO would be supportive really aligned with my priorities." - William G. Hamilton, MD
