Orthopedic surgeons depend on precise medical instruments to give their patients the best experience during surgery and throughout recovery. Medical Component Specialists, located in Bellingham, MA, have over 60 years of creating precision ground medical components for a wide range of applications. This includes expertly crafted shoulder pins, which help improve surgical outcomes.
When in the market for shoulder pins, our products provide an ultra-sharp hollow point to reduce insertion forces, while harder cutting edges mean lower heat and minimal cell necrosis. Our precision finish is ultra-smooth, which makes the pins easier to remove post-surgery, minimizing patient discomfort.
Shoulder pins created by MCS come in a variety of options to best meet your component needs. This includes:
- K-Wires – small (.7mm to 1.8mm dia)
- Steinmann Pins – medium (1.8mm to 4.0mm dia)
- Trocars — large (4mm to 8mm dia)
Depending on your needs, shoulder pins also come as extended length K-wires in stainless steel or nitinol for orthopedic guidewire applications. Our in-line capabilities are fully optimized for K-wire production and we have immediate access to most materials for K-wire production. We also create shoulder pins that come in specialty varieties such as Olive, Knowles, Overmold/notched, Threaded, Echo-genic, or Biopsy Needles.
