Giving Surgeons the Freedom to Innovate Next Generation MIS Bone-Resection Procedures with Breakthrough Technology.

Our Mission

Enabling Surgeons to Treat Bone Pathology Never Before Reached Endoscopically by Combining High-Speed, High-Torque Rotation with Stiff Articulation.

By innovating the technology and engineering of tomorrow, JPI aims to improve minimally invasive orthopedic solutions to joint degeneration, empowering people to stay active.

We firmly believe that better patient outcomes in the form of a smaller surgical footprint, faster recoveries and lower revision rates can only be achieved while also enhancing the surgeon's accuracy, precision and efficiency.

Breakthrough Device Designation
Mid-Term Opportunities in Robotic Surgery
Joint Replacement: Replacing fixed angle bur tools with  Articulator™ adds degrees of freedom at the distal end, significantly upgrading the robot’s access, efficiency, and ergonomics
Robotic Spine:  Marrying the accuracy of robotic navigation with the Articulator™ Bur’s 601% increased cutting surface could facilitate the transformation of predominantly open spine procedures to MIS
Breakthrough Device Designation
Straight Bur Versus Articulator™

An Articulator™ Bur Materially Improves Efficiency, Precision and Accuracy in Bone Resection, Significantly Reducing Surgical Time and Learning Curve

Case Study: Straight Bur Versus Articulator™

Standard 5.5mm Straight Bur
Straight bur is awkward to use when trying to reach tight space, limited visualization of cutting tip and time consuming to repeatedly reposition
JPI 5.0mm Articulator™ Bur
Articulator™ allows for improved visualization and reach due to better triangulation, ergonomic handling and time efficient burring
The smallest radius of movement for any arthroscopic powered instrument.
Precision around corners with less soft-tissue disruption.
Improved access to the acromion and distal clavicle in the shoulder.
Optimized reach to cam lesion and subspine bone pathology in the hip
Applications in ankle and knee arthroscopy.
Articulating tip increases visualization of cutting bur head by optimizing triangulation
Increased Cutting Surface Area

601% Increased Cutting Surface Area with Articulating Rotary Burs: Implications for Bone Resection in Arthroscopic, Spinal and Robotic Surgery

Cutting Surface Area of Straight Arthroscopic Bur vs Novel Articulating Rotary Bur

A quantified 3D point cloud analysis study performed by Joint Preservation Innovations demonstrated that JPI’s Arthroscopic Articulator™ has 601% more cutting surface area than a standard 5.0mm fixed angle straight bur allowing unparalleled bone resection performance and reach during bone resection procedures
