Date:9/17/2007

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Kyphon Inc. (Nasdaq: KYPH) announced today that it has obtained clearance from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and U.S. Department of Justice under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (as amended) with respect to its acquisition of the non-vertebroplasty spine-related assets and associated intellectual property rights of Disc-O-Tech Medical Technologies, Ltd., a privately held Israeli company, and its U.S. subsidiary. This clearance relates to one of two definitive agreements entered into with Disc-O-Tech in December 2006.
