About the Company
Orthovita is an orthobiologics and biosurgery company that develops and markets novel medical devices. Our orthobiologics platform offers products for the fusion, regeneration and fixation of human bone. Our biosurgery platform offers products for controlling intra-operative bleeding, also known as hemostasis. Our current fusion and regeneration products are based on our proprietary VITOSS™ Bone Graft Substitute technology and address the non-structural bone graft market with synthetic, bioactive alternatives to patient- and cadaver-derived bone tissue. CORTOSS™ Bone Augmentation Material, an injectable, polymer composite that mimics the structural characteristics of human bone, provides the basis for our fixation portfolio. CORTOSS received U.S. regulatory clearance in June 2009 for use in vertebral augmentation. Our hemostasis portfolio includes VITAGEL™ Surgical Hemostat, a unique, collagen-based matrix that controls bleeding and facilitates healing, and VITASURE™ Absorbable Hemostat, a plant-based product that can be deployed quickly throughout surgery.
