A 5-year spine-device warranty? Titan Spine is all in

Written by Laura Dyrda | September 09, 2014 | Print  |

 Titan Spine now offers a warranty for its Endoskeleton line of spinal interbody fusion devices for a one-time free replacement.

The warranty will give the replacement for any eligible Titan spinal interbody fusion device if revision surgery is required within a five-year period, as outlined in the terms of the warranty agreement. This is an extremely unique offering in the spine device space, where companies are looking for new ways to draw potential customers. The healthcare system is looking to eliminate revision procedures to improve quality and lower costs, and a company willing to back-up their outcomes with a warranty could be very attractive.

 

The Endoskeleton devices include the company's proprietary implant surface technology with a unique combination of roughened topographies at the macro, micro and cellular levels designed to create an optimal host-bone response and actively participate in the fusion process.

 

The implant encourages the natural production of bone morphogenetic proteins for a faster and more robust fusion.

 

"In my experience this is the first time that a device company in the spine market has offered such a guarantee," said Titan Spine Chief Medical Officer Paul Slosar, MD. "The warranty highlights the recognition that our engineered spine implants continue to lead the surface technology space."

 

The company received feedback on the warranty to show confidence in company products and the science validating its technology. The company recently received FDA clearance for the TL lateral system and the Whitecloud Award for Best Basic Research from the Scoliosis Research Society.

 

"We look forward to accelerating momentum by providing our physician customers an additional reason to trust that our products will successfully perform in patients," says Titan Spine CEO Peter Ulllrich, MD.
