Orthopedic Screws

There are more products in use in surgery with the word “screw” attached to them than any other term. In orthopedics alone, there are about 250,000 parts in the Orthopedic Network News/Curvo database out of the 1.1 million parts.

Although the number of orthopedic screws may seem large, the sizes, threads, materials, heads, screw tips, and design reflect how and where they are deployed. Below are some of the features of orthopedic screws.
