Spinal Elements celebrates 2-year launch of Hero Allograft; donates sales earnings

Written by Anuja Vaidya | November 10, 2014 | Print  |

Spinal Elements will celebrate the two-year anniversary of its Hero Allograft launch at the North American Spine Society convention in San Francisco, Nov. 12 to 14.

By the end of 2014, an estimated $600,000 will have been raised from its Hero Allograft sales for children's charities.

 

The donations will be split nationally between Make-A-Wish and Memphis, Tenn.-based St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The donations will be given in honor of Mike Leahy, MD, Mirza Baig, MD, and Douglas Musser, DO, who all participate in Spinal Elements' "Pledge to Be a Hero" program, and thus use the Hero Allograft exclusively.

 

Spinal Elements launched its national "Pledge to Be a Hero" program in 2012, which offers surgeons and hospitals across the country the opportunity to pledge to use only allograft tissue from companies that do not profit from the transfer of that tissue whenever clinically feasible.
