BOCA RATON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–US Spine® announced today that it is expanding upon the global reach for its CE Marked Facet Fixation System™ technology. The company has now contracted the services of international Spine and Orthopedics consultants in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East and will continue to manage North American and South American sales and distribution through its US headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida.
“Here in the States, our Facet Fixation technology has been ushering in a new type of posterior fixation that allows surgeons to create a rigid posterior construct in a fraction of the time required by conventional devices,” said Doris Blake, President and CEO of US Spine. “Now, with enhanced sales and distribution capabilities in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, we can provide surgeons all over the world with a safe and reproducible alternative for posterior lumbar fixation.”
US Spine’s Facet Fixation System consists of two parts, the facet Gun and the Facet Bolt. The Gun enables the surgeon to lock the facet joint in two simple steps, while the Bolt is the first and only available locking facet implant, providing stiffness and strength equivalent to conventional devices, but simpler, faster and less invasive to use.
