Spinal Elements, a spine technology company, acquires Benvenue Medical, Inc. assets. Among the assets are the Luna XD multi-expandable lumbar fusion device and the Orbit Articulating Discectomy System.
Jason Blain, President and CEO, Spinal Elements, said: “The acquisition of these Benvenue assets marks another transformational MIS investment for Spinal Elements. We believe we have an exceptional opportunity to advance these novel Luna XD and Orbit technologies as part of our MIS Ultra platform of products and procedures. We are thrilled with the quality of the clinician adopters and feedback we have received in our market diligence. Luna XD and Orbit integrates well with our vision of delivering innovative and differentiated technologies that enable fundamental shifts in MIS spine surgery, including the site of care in both hospital and ASC settings.”
Sandeep Kunwar, M.D., F.A.C.S., Co-Medical Director, Bell Neuroscience, Professor, UCSF said: “Luna XD is a significant advancement in MIS fusion surgery and has allowed me to implant a more robust and reproducible expandable cage that allows me to implant an ALIF footprint device through a TLIF approach with minimal to no nerve retraction. It also allows for endplate to endplate grafting post-expansion.”
Richard G. Fessler, M.D., PhD, Rush University said: “The Orbit System, combined with the Luna XD makes the procedure more efficient and truly addresses the unmet needs across all discectomy procedures. In 25 years of performing MIS surgery, the Orbit System is the best set of discectomy tools I’ve ever used.”
Jason Blain further commented, “We are excited to get back into manufacturing and will be deploying a hybrid supply strategy, leveraging our manufacturing expertise to build a world-class operation while continuing to partner with external suppliers as well.”
