Modern Grinding - Knowles Pin

A Knowles Pin is used for percutaneous pinning of the reducible intra capsular femoral neck fractures.

The Knowles pin is used by surgeons to help stabilize a fractured clavicle, ankle or other fractures that range in diameter from 3.0 millimeters to 4 millimeters. The length of these pins ranges from 65 millimeters to 100 millimeters. The Knowles pin is often used instead of a plate because of its low rate of complications and its efficacy. Modern Grinding is capable of manufacturing Knowles Pins between .6mm and 3.2mm in diameter and from 1 inch to 22 inches in length.
