Pelvic-repair device developed by UT Southwestern surgeons enables minimally invasive trauma surgery
Date:4/18/2011

s to enable proper healing. There is a lot of stress, a lot of strain, and it can be a real struggle to get the pieces back where they belong."

The minimally invasive approach using the Starr Frame and Reinert reduction tool system generally results in faster recovery. Patients are encouraged to initiate postsurgical activities within a day or two of the procedure, and often begin rehabilitation in a pool within a week, Dr. Starr said.

"The beauty of the frame is that it takes the procedure and breaks it down to a series of steps that are easy to understand. It allows you to set the fracture, check it in multiple views, and tweak it as necessary," he said. "Using the frame approach, you can complete what can be a complex operation in a more controlled fashion."

Dr. Starr presented David Ewing, a Dallas-area finance executive, with the option of the frame approach after Mr. Ewing was seriously injured in an automobile accident in early 2009. Mr. Ewing chose the frame procedure and within two days was able to sit in a wheelchair. Six weeks later, he was swimming. Now, about two years after the accident, he feels no residual effects.

"With the traditional, open surgical procedure, you have to remain immobile for an extended period of time weeks," Mr. Ewing said. "You are able to become mobile quicker with the frame."

Medical device entrepreneurs Bob Sudol and Frank Gerome worked with Drs. Starr and Reinert and Dr. Joe Allred of UT Southwestern's technology development office to apply for the system's patent and to form Starr Frame LLC to market and distribute the innovation. A recent visiting surgeon from England, Dr. Peter Bates, teamed with Drs. Starr and Reinert to publish a textbook on the frame approach.

"Starr Frame delivers superior patient benefits that ultimately can lower the cost of quality medical care," said Dr. Dennis Stone, vice president for technology development at UT Southwestern.
