Bioventus will co-develop a next generation bone allograft solution for spine and trauma surgery with Tampa, Fla.-based LifeLink Tissue Bank.

LifeLink Tissue Bank is part of the LifeLink Foundation, an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to the recovery and transplantation of organs and tissue.

 

Bioventus is an orthobiologics company which offers products for bone healing, bone graft and knee osteoarthritis. Its Exogen Ultrasound Bone Healing System uses low intensity pulsed ultrasound to stimulate the body's natural healing process.

 

"The gift of tissue donation is invaluable and offers the opportunity to benefit so many patients in need," said Jean Davis, President and CEO of LifeLink Foundation. "Companies like Bioventus are helping to further enhance the immeasurable impact of tissue donations by investing in R&D to bring new solutions to the market and we are excited for our research teams to collaborate together on this development initiative."
