Gamma3 Locking Nail

The Gamma3 Locking Nail System is based on Stryker’s more than 25 years of Gamma Nail experience. This is the third generation of intramedullary short and long Gamma fixation nails. The new system is designed to facilitate minimally invasive surgery through the latest instrumentation and optimized surgical techniques.

Features & Benefits

The new nails have a proximal diameter of 15.5mm to help shorten the incision length for minimally invasive surgery while offering the biomechanical strength and cutout resistance of the established Trochanteric and Long Gamma Nails.1,2
