Carly Behm -  

Neurosurgeon Joel Siegal, MD, performed the first procedure with Orthofix's 3D-printed implant for posterior lumbar interbody fusions, according to a June 29 news release.

The Forza Ti Spacer uses Orthofix's Nanovate technology. It is 3D-printed, has porous titanium and has a large window for packing bone-grafting material.

"The large opening for packing bone grafting materials and the 3D-printed titanium endplates of the FORZA Ti Spacer are well designed to aid in our goal of maximizing bone ingrowth to aid fusion," said Dr. Siegal of Cleveland-based St. Vincent Charity Medical Center.
