Atlantis Orthopedics and I will be parting ways. I appreciate all of their support and collegiality over the years. Unfortunately, I will not be accepting any new patients under the auspices of AO after 12/25/22.

Taylor Spatial Frame


The TAYLOR SPATIAL FRAME is a unique external fixation device used to treat a variety of bone fractures and deformities. The device consists of two rings connected by six telescopic struts extending from and to special universal joints located on the rings.

The device fits around the patient’s limb and is attached to the bone with pins that extend from the rings through the skin and into the bone. By making daily adjustments to the lengths of the six struts, one ring can be repositioned with respect to the other, resulting in the ability to correct even the most complex bone deformities and fractures.

Using a web-based application, your surgeon is able to enter the original deformity data into the program through standard web devices such as “radio buttons” and “text boxes.” Based on the data entered, the software provides the surgeon with a day-to-day prescription of strut adjustments needed to correct the bone deformity.

The software is capable of producing graphic representations of the deformity at any point during the prescribed schedule. As a result, your surgeon is able to conduct a side-by-side analysis between your x-ray and the graphic produced by the program in order to ensure the deformity is healing correctly and in the projected amount of time.
