Amedica® Corporation Acquires US Spine, Further Securing Its Leadership Position in the Spinal Device Marketplace
Date:9/21/2010

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Amedica Corporation (AC), a spinal and orthopaedic implant and instrument company focused on unique silicon nitride (SiN) ceramic technologies, announced today that it has acquired US Spine, a privately held, well-known medical device company focused on the development and commercialization of advanced spinal implant systems.  Development efforts at Boca Raton-based US Spine have produced several unique technologies that are in the market, including certain facet technologies that address open, MIS, allograft, and deformity correction procedures, complementing existing spinal implant and device product lines from Amedica.

This pure play acquisition, the first in the spinal device industry in 2010, continues the significant expansion plans of Amedica to become an important platform technology concern in both the spinal and orthopaedic reconstruction markets.  Terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.

Amedica, based in Salt Lake City, is a spinal implant company that manufactures and markets silicon nitride technologies that are now being utilized in spinal implant applications; however, the unique SiN materials have market changing characteristics for hip, knee and extremity implant applications, as well.  The material is fracture resistant; its bearing/articulating surfaces do not produce wear debris that is linked to osteolysis-related re-operations.  Additionally, the implants are BioActive™ with a hydrophilic and conductive micro-structure surface to enhance bone in-growth and solid attachment.

The US Spine acquisition properly positions Amedica as a well balanced company in the spinal device market, completing its full-line of spinal implants and instruments and expanding its spinal device offerings to cover all spinal surgery indications including several minimally invasive techniques, PEEK and silicon nitride interbody spacers, biologics and deformity c
