Alpine was developed based on the clinically-proven, conical tapered hip stem philosophy. ODEV's engineers worked closely with a select team of orthopedic surgeons to advance known concepts and principles resulting in unique design enhancements. These include the optimization of three critical aspects of the implant - neck length and shape, medial curve geometry and fit, and overall stem length.

Brent Bartholomew, President of Ortho Development explained, "With Alpine, we have taken a decades-old concept and developed a modern, versatile product that will accommodate multiple surgical approaches to hip replacement. Currently, this type of tapered stem is being used in over 30 percent of hip replacement procedures, and we expect Alpine will become a major contributor to our future growth."
