13 Sep NGMedical GmbH Announces First Cases in the USA of its AM Titanium Cervical Interbody BEE®
NONNWEILER, Germany & SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NGMedical, a German medical device manufacturer exclusively focused on creating innovative technologies for spinal application announces first operations of its purely additively manufactured titanium cervical BEE® cage.
The BEE® cage is designed to challenge the limits of additive manufacturing. The purposefully designed honeycomb endplate design reduces the risk of subsidence, while allowing fusion. The honeycomb structure allows for bony ingrowth and demonstrates the reduced use of titanium minimizing risks of x-ray artefacts, while offering a very large graft space. This is another significant innovation from the team, who invented the first line of additively manufactured interbody devices.
“This successful market launch in the USA is an important step for NGMedical. The first operations in this important market are a great achievement in our international commercialization. BEE® is our first implant available in the USA to be followed by further innovations shortly.” says Peter Weiland, CEO of NGMedical.
“The BEE cage is the ideal cage that has been uniquely created and designed with the surgeon and patient in mind. We are lucky to be able to work with such a skilled surgeon as Dr. Nunley in our early days of launching in the US.” According to Josh Sandberg of NGMedical, Inc.
“The innovative concept of the BEE® cage with its honeycomb structure mesh, which provides an increased contact surface for bone ongrowth and ingrowth while resisting subsidence ultimately convinced me to adopt is as part of my practice. I was honored to perform the first cases in the USA. The team at NGMedical are to be commended for creating this unique interbody device with an easy-to-use instrument set. “ says Pierce D. Nunley, MD.
