Titan Spine's interbody fusion implants reached a milestone — there have been 27,000 implantations of the Endoskeleton.

 

"The significant growth of Titan Spine observed in 2014 alone has been tremendous, and we are extremely well-positioned to continue our momentum in 2015 and beyond," said President Kevin Gemas. "Over the past year, Titan achieved several milestones that attributed to our global growth and further validated our position as the leader in surface technology."

 

Here are 10 things to know about this benchmark:

 

1. There was a 25 percent increase in the number of surgeries performed using the Endoskeleton in 2014 over 2013.

 

2. The Endoskeleton interbody fusion device achieved $26 million annualized sales revenue run rate.

5. In 2014, the company also received FDA clearance for Endoskeleton TL, the first lateral device to feature Titan's surface technology. Titan launched this device late last year on a limited basis and plans to fully launch in the first quarter of 2015.
