HUNTLEY, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders today announced the full commercial launch of key additions to the OSSEO-LOC™ spinal implant family.

ProLift® Expandable PLIF/TLIF Spacer System and TiBOW™ Expandable TLIF Spacer System join Life Spine’s OSSEO-LOC offering of titanium surface treated implants. OSSEO-LOC is a proprietary surface treatment that creates a unique osteophylic surface architecture for potential bone on-growth.1 The unique surface architecture promotes mineralization of implant, while negating potential challenges associated with surface treated implants.2 OSSEO-LOC surface treatment maintains native titanium grain structure and material, and has been designed to optimize intervertebral stability.1

Other key OSSEO-LOC implants include the static spinal spacer systems PLATEAU®-C (cervical spacer system), PLATEAU-Z Ti (TLIF spacer system), PRO-LINK® TI (stand-alone cervical spacer system), PLATEAU TI (straight and curved PLIF and TLIF spacer systems); SImpact™ lag and compression screws for sacroiliac fixation and stabilization.

Mariusz Knap, Vice President of Marketing noted, “We are excited to launch the key additions to the OSSEO-LOC family of spinal implants, as it deepens Life Spine’s commitment to provide surgeons with access to our highly differentiated, minimally invasive spinal products. Addressing a variety of pathologies, Life Spine’s procedural based solutions increase the value of care by delivering both the ability to correct spinal alignment and improved patient experiences and outcomes. This will be a driving force as we continue to expand Life Spine’s wide range of surgical solutions.”
