Baby Gorilla® Mini Plating System

Paragon 28 is pleased to announce the highly-anticipated launch of the Baby Gorilla® Mini Plating system!

The Baby Gorilla® Mini Plating system contains plates, screws and instrumentation designed specifically for use within the foot and ankle. The system incorporates the modularity, optionality and specificity admired in the classic Gorilla® Plating system while offering a comprehensive set of implants for procedures that require narrower plates and smaller screws to match the anatomy and size of the small bones within the foot.

  • Straight Plates
  • L-Plates
  • Oblique L-Plates
  • T-Plates
