SMART Bone Grafting Technique

The S.M.A.R.T.®  Minimally Invasive Bone Grafting Technique

Traditional bone grafting often requires large incisions, screws, titanium frames or other devices to stabilize the graft material.  The SMART® technique was developed as a minimally invasive alternative.  Dr. Timko was one of the first 150 clinicians in the world to be trained in this technique. It uses specially designed instruments to prepare a tunnel into which a growth factor along with bone grafting materials are inserted.  Large flaps, membranes, or screws are not needed for this minimally invasive procedure.
