An ideal instance; a perfect embodiment of a concept. A model or pattern of excellence or perfection.
The second perfect number. The number of bones in the human foot including the sesamoid bones.
Paragon 28® was established in 2010 to address unmet and under-served needs of the foot and ankle community. We are dedicated to creating tailored solutions and tools to improve the treatment of even the most difficult foot and ankle conditions. Paragon 28® operates under the following principles: inclusion and respect of individual surgeon’s preferences, creative innovation, high-quality, cost-effective implants, and a strong belief that through research and innovation, we can create new and improved solutions to the challenges faced by foot and ankle specialists.
Foot and ankle surgeons are our primary focus at Paragon 28®. We listen to your ideas, your criticisms, and what needs to be better. We seek to understand your hesitance and frustrations with certain procedures and focus on how we can make things easier. The name “Paragon 28” was chosen by design — to never lose focus on our goal to advance the science of foot and ankle surgery.Get to know us

The PRESERVE™ Evans Lateral Column Lengthening Graft is a patented, tapered wedge designed for use in an Evans Calcaneal Osteotomy. The Paragon 28® PRESERVE™ Grafts are anatomically contoured, aseptically processed and density matched allografts. The anatomic contour of the Evans graft features a dorsal to plantar taper as well as a more standard lateral to medial taper. This allows for ease of insertion and relieves strain on the lateral band of the Long Plantar Ligament and medial soft structure like the Periosteum and Spring Ligament. The primary donor sites for the PRESERVE™ Evans Lateral Column Lengthening Graft are the patella, talus and femoral calcar to provide strength to an area subject to high compressive loads.
All Paragon 28® PRESERVE™ Grafts are aseptically processed, allowing for maintenance of structural integrity and biocompatibility of the graft. Gamma irradiation is not used during processing in order to help avoid structural fatigue and crumbling of the graft. Further, hydrogen peroxide is avoided during processing with the intent to help preserve osteoinductivity of the graft. The PRESERVE™ Evans Lateral Column Lengthening Graft is harvested from the femoral calcar of health donors to ensure density matching with the host site which is critical in ensuring the strength of the graft holds up during incorporation.
