Profemur® TL2 hip stem

Tapered wedge stem philosophy

Designed for primary hip replacement surgery, the Profemur® TL2 hip stem is a dual tapered wedge stem with an innovative geometry. It features a reduced lateral shoulder convenient for tissue-sparing surgical techniques. The Profemur(R) TL2 applies many of the same philosophies as the Profemur(R) TL, but with the added benefit of an optimized neck length and both standard and high-offset options to allow for direct lateralization.  Allowing for three-point fixation, the stem is shaped to contact cortical bone medially and laterally, while conserving cancellous bone anteriorly and posteriorly. Plasma spray coating and anteroposterior taper allow contact in the frontal plane, while rotational stability is enhanced via distal grooves.
