Innovation in bone healing and tissue repair

Many patients suffer from chronic back pain and often the clinical cause of such pain is related to problems with the spine itself. 

The spine is a flexible structure composed of alternating blocks of bone (vertebrae) interspaced with blocks of cartilage-like tissue (discs).  If the vertebrae or discs are causing pain, due to degeneration, trauma or instability, the surgeon can attempt to provide stability to the region by fusing two or more vertebrae, i.e. perform a spinal fusion.  This surgical procedure includes the removal of the damaged disc, placement of an implant (often referred to as an inter-body cage) and promoting bone growth between the vertebrae using a bone graft or bone graft substitute.
