Welcome to Alpha Orthopedic Systems

Alpha Orthopedic Systems was founded on the Arthrex principles of helping surgeons treat their patients better. We have dedicated our business to helping advance surgeons’ training in minimally invasive orthopedics. Our team of professional representatives, along with our staff of experienced managers and education personnel, combine to offer over 200 years of surgical representative experience, knowledge, and resource for our customers.

We welcome visitors to this site, and ultimately to our facilities in Louisville and Nashville. If time does not permit a visit to us, we are happy to provide one of our two Mobile Learning Centers to come to you.

We learn and grow through experience and longstanding belief that we will never master this business. Just as orthopedics is a “practice”, which involves continuing education, we view our business as a progressive opportunity to improve and learn.

We look forward to serving your orthopedic needs.

Univers II Shoulder System

Univers II Shoulder System

The Univers II humeral component was designed to account for anatomical variations of the proximal humerus commonly encountered by the surgeon. Variable adjustment with respect to the inclination angle, version and head offset are features critical to reconstruction of the proximal humerus. Read More »The simplified design of the Univers II humeral component allows for the adaptation of the humeral stem and articular surface to the position that best represents the patient’s normal anatomy. All of the adjustments can be made intraoperatively with the implant in the humeral canal. This unique feature allows the surgeon to more accurately recreate the normal anatomical relationships of the shoulder joint.

BioComposite Interference Screws

The Bio-Tenodesis Screw System eliminates transosseous tunnels in tendon repairs and ligament reconstructions. Tenodesis Screws may be used in conjunction with #2 or
2-0 FiberWire® to facilitate intraoperative tissue-tensioning and fixation in a predrilled socket. Read More »The predrilled socket minimizes incision length, dissection and overall morbidity. BioComposite and vented PEEK Tenodesis screw insertion provides superior and immediate fixation for foot and ankle indications such as Achilles repair, FDL, FHL tendon transfers and lateral ligament stabilization. The system can also be used for applications in the hand and elbow (UCL, LRTI, SL reconstruction, distal biceps), shoulder (rotator cuff repair, proximal biceps), as well as collateral ligament repair/reconstruction and secondary graft or suture fixation for ACL/PCL reconstruction. This construct allows for direct tendon-to-bone healing, without hardware prominence.

ACL BTB Graft Fixation

The simplicity and strength of the ACL TightRope RT can be used with bone-tendon ACL grafts. The BTB TightRope offers the same adjustable, four-point locking system as the ACL TightRope RT, but allows placement through a small drill hole in the cortical bone block. Read More »The TightRope button facilitates dependable, cortical fixation and the adjustable loop allows the graft to be pulled into the femoral socket as deep as needed for ideal graft tunnel-matching. The BTB TightRope also allows fixation of BTB grafts into anatomic femoral sockets that can be difficult to reach with traditional interference screws.
