Orthofix Announces FDA Clearance and First Patient Implants of FIREBIRD SI Fusion System for Low Back Pain

The FIREBIRD SI Fusion System is implanted through a minimally invasive surgery that typically can be performed in about an hour and may lead to less time at the hospital and a faster recovery than a traditional sacroiliac joint fusion surgery. The procedure with the FIREBIRD SI Fusion System involves inserting two to four bone screws across the SI Joint to stabilize during the fusion process.

4/23/19: Orthofix M6-C Artificial Cervical Disc – First US Patient Implants Following FDA Approval

Designed with an artificial viscoelastic nucleus and fiber annulus that mimics the anatomic structure of a natural disc, the M6-C artificial cervical disc device is the only artificial cervical disc available in the U.S. that enables compression or “shock absorption” at the implanted level. The disc also provides a controlled range of motion when the spine transitions in its combined complex movements.

Orthofix Medical Report: Full Two-Year Authoritative Data on the M6-C Artificial Cervical Disc Study Shows Significant Improvement in Neck and Arm Pain

M6-C Artificial Cervical Disc Receives FDA Approval

2/7/19: M6-C artificial cervical disc is the only artificial cervical disc that mimics the anatomic structure of a natural disc. Designed to restore physiologic motion to the spine, the M6-C disc is indicated as an alternative to cervical fusion. The disc preserves motion by restoring biomechanical function at the treated level after native disc removal and potentially reduces subsequent degeneration of adjacent vertebral segments.
