With its suite of technologies that meet the evolving needs of the outpatient clinical segment, SITES is a trusted partner to medical device companies that are seeking to enhance their orthopedic offerings, via new proprietary technologies and advanced manufacturing processes. SITES’ OsteoSync Ti is a proven, best-in-class titanium porous in-growth material that allows manufacturers to fabricate fully cementless joint replacements at a cost similar to plasma spray, an on-growth material. The use of fully cementless implants saves OR time as there is no need to prepare and apply bone cement. OsteoSync Ti cementless implants can be made at a price point that makes it economic for hospitals to substitute cementless devices for cemented ones, reducing several months-worth of inventory for SITES’ OEM partners.
Dave Anderson, Commercial Affairs Lead at SITES, highlights their engagement with the spine implant company Nanovis, which has incorporated OsteoSync into their interbody fusion devices and thereby achieved a leg-up on their competition in terms of initial and long-term implant stability. Nanovis has implanted approximately 5,000 implants to date and is experiencing market-leading growth rates.
Our team has an in-depth understanding of evolving customer needs and the creativity to come up with novel solutions
The team at SITES is excited about implementing their make-to-order process that it believes is game-changing. A porous Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) technology called OsteoSync PEEK is under development, which will offer high bone in-growth along with the ability for surgeons to monitor bone remodeling via standard orthopedic imaging modalities without artifacts. In addition, they have developed many patents to deliver therapeutics through the implant to the bone-implant interface to address a variety of difficult-to-treat patient conditions such as infection and cancer.
SITES will continue to help businesses succeed by focusing on new technology development. “What sets SITES apart is its people; many of which are highly experienced in the orthopedic industry and know how to solve problems. Our team has an in-depth understanding of evolving customer needs and the creativity to come up with novel solutions,” concludes Stalcup.
