"We are thrilled to have the support of Versant in this critical round of financing.  Having Kirk on our board will provide us with additional guidance as we navigate both the commercial strategy for our SImmetry® Sacroiliac Joint Fusion System(TM) and the rigors of clinical trials for the GLYDER(TM) facet resurfacing product," said Jim Bullock, President and Chief Executive Officer.  SImmetry, a device designed to treat low back pain emanating from the sacroiliac joint, has been approved by the FDA for commercialization.  "These funds will allow us to focus on building world class sales, marketing, and clinical efforts to commercialize this important new technology," said Bullock.  "Additionally, I am very encouraged with the preliminary European clinical trial results of Glyder, our facet resurfacing device.  This funding will help expand our clinical efforts which will ultimately serve to gain CE Mark and US trial approval," concluded Bullock.
