Spine-Bending Market

Today, the market for spine surgery is growing by more than 20% annually based on fusion technologies alone, despite the fact that those technologies are decades old and flawed. However, a heightened awareness of the clinical drawbacks of fusion is fueling prolific company creation in a new spine motion preservation segment of the industry. Some 118 start-ups in spine are dotting the landscape. Many hope to offer new devices that address spinal joint reconstruction; artificial discs, disc nuclei, annulus repair, facet joint replacement, and dynamic or flexible stabilization of the spine.

Replication Medical Inc.

Replication Medical is developing a spinal disc nucleus replacement based on a two phase, expandable hydrogel that has properties that ideally suit it for the intervertebral disc space. The implant swells and contracts to fill the disc space; it swells when a person is "downloaded" at night, and compresses water out when the spine is loaded.
