The healthcare sector is using new innovative technologies for spinal implants to improve the recovery time of the patients.
FREMONT, CA: The spinal implants and device market are rapidly becoming one of the most innovative and developed medical devices. It is estimated that it will grow more in the future. The market value of the field is also increasing with its new innovative technologies and devices.
According to numerous innovative start-ups and leading corporate companies, in the next few years, more innovation will be witnessed in the spinal implants and device market. Several companies are continuously advancing in this field and enhancing treatment for the patients by supporting the surgeons.
In the last few years, spine surgery has immensely improved due to the development of innovative techniques. Still, very little progress was possible in developing new materials that can be used for implants with titanium (Ti) and cobalt-chromium (CoCr). Several start-ups are launching their new devices, which can be used for such surgeries. For example, a start-up has introduced a new proprietary metal known as the molybdenum rhenium (MoRe), and the FDA even approved it.
Such a new superalloy will become a catalyst that can be used as a disruption in the orthopedic and spine space along with more bio-friendly, smaller, durable, and thinner implants. Such implants will help enhance the patient's recovery time and even decrease soft tissue disruption.
The MoRe alloy is also more robust and fatigue resistant than the traditional Ti or CoCr. The alloy will also attract the deformity market because it has a record of breaking four and six-rod constructs. It is even more hydrophilic than titanium. Therefore, the interbody with MoRe alloy will increase the amount of osseointegrative characteristics of 3D printed titanium interbody in the worldwide market.
Some companies have developed a new approach for thoracolumbar fusion. It combines a Controlled Fixation surgical technique with improved instrumentation along with highly innovative implant design. The system will help to accomplish concrete feedback throughout the surgery. Such peri-operative solution will also prioritize on raising the present standard of healthcare.
Thoracolumbar fusion is becoming a popular choice among hospitals due to its intuitive and unique technique, all-in-one properties, and a decrease in sterilization difficulties.
