Titan Spine received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to commercially release its Endoskeleton TCS.

The interbody fusion device is designed for the cervical spine with integrated fixation. It uses Titan's proprietary surface technology that participates in the fusion process by creating an osteogenic response to the implant's topography.


Paul Slosar, MD, performed the first surgery using the Endoskeleton TCS on Feb. 9 at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco. The device is the 7th interbody device in Titan's portfolio of titanium spinal implant products.
