OrthoPediatrics received FDA 510(k) approval for its PediFoot Deformity Correction System.

Three things to know:

1. PediFoot is a pediatric-specific system to treat fractures and deformities of the foot and ankle.

2. The device features implants and tools that increase procedure throughput. It is intended for fixation of fractures, osteotomies, non-unions, replantations and fusions of small bones and bone fragments.

3. In June, OrthoPediatrics acquired foot and ankle surgical device company Vilex to close the gap between its trauma and deformity portfolios.
