Spine Surgeons Embrace Uniquely Effective Valeo Interbody Fusion Devices As Amedica Announces 10,000 Implantations
Date:3/22/2013

SALT LAKE CITY, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Amedica Corporation, a spinal and reconstructive medical device manufacturer, today announced the 10,000th worldwide implantation of its Valeo Interbody Fusion Devices. The Valeo Interbody Fusion Device System, made of Amedica's proprietary Silicon Nitride ceramic technology, is used during surgical procedures to treat spinal disorders such as spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, severe disc degeneration, or spinal fractures.

Due to its proven record of superior new bone growth and antibacterial properties, surgeons at leading hospitals worldwide are increasingly relying on Valeo Silicon Nitride Interbody Fusion Devices to increase the probability of fusion.

"In my four years of experience with Silicon Nitride Interbody Fusion Devices, I've seen the material exceed the capabilities of poly-ether-ether-ketone (PEEK) and titanium (Ti), resulting in better fusion, which translates to better results for my patients," said Dr. Grant Skidmore of Neurosurgical Specialists, Inc., in Norfolk, Va. "As a spinal surgeon, my paramount concern is getting my patients back to their daily activities as soon as possible. Patients who I've treated with Valeo implants have had a quicker recovery time compared to traditional implants."

The Valeo Interbody Fusion Device System includes cervical and lumbar implants designed to participate in the fusion process, optimizing patient outcomes. The implants are semi-radiolucent allowing surgeons to ascertain exact placement intra-operatively and improve post-operative monitoring.  Valeo Interbody Fusion Devices do not cause MRI or CT artifacts which can make imaging interpretation difficult. 

"The success of the Valeo Interbody Fusion Device System is a testament to the proven safety and effectiveness of our Silicon Nitride technology," said Eric K. Olson , President and Chief Executive Officer, Amedica. "As we continue to work toward a new standard of care for interbody fusion devices, we are pleased to see a continued increase in physician adoption. We are greatly encouraged for the future of this technology."
