PROMO Multi-Plane Hallux Valgus Correction System

Paragon 28® designed PROMO to be the joint-sparing, multi-plane, osteotomy solution for hallux valgus. Before PROMO, the procedure options for reproducibly addressing the frontal plane deformity through an osteotomy in hallux valgus was very limited. The PROMO system allows for guided, reproducible correction in both the frontal and transverse planes through a single oblique osteotomy.

The magic of PROMO comes through a series of simple instrumentation that guides the osteotomy specific to the unique deformity of each patient. After the desired correction has been achieved, the PROMO system includes 8 unique medial locking plate options designed around the length and angle of the osteotomy.

Additionally, patent-pending Precision™ Guide technology allows for placement of a crossing screw across the osteotomy designed to avoid hardware collision and allow on-axis placement of the locking plate screws.
