First implant of Alphatec Spine's bone graft implant successful: 5 takeaways

Spinal Tech

The first patient surgical implantation of Alphatec Spine's Alphatec Neocore Osteoconductive Matrix was completed.

Here are five takeaways:


1. The implant is a synthetic scaffold for the regeneration of bone.


2. Alphatec Neocore becomes a complete bone graft after hydrated with patient bone marrow aspirate.


3. Designed to perform like natural bone, Alphatec Neocore allows revascularization throughout graft and supports replacement of three-dimensional matrix with new bone.


4. Thomas T. Haider, MD, of Haider Spinal Center in Riverside, Calif., developed the implant.


5. Alphatec Spine has a global, exclusive development and distribution agreement with Haider Biologics for the implant.
