Altus Spine Announces Private Label Partnership with Nanovis® Spine

West Chester, PA – July 14th, 2022 /OrthoSpineNews/– Altus Spine, a leader in the development and innovation of medical devices used in spinal correction surgery, announces private label partnership with Nanovis® Spine to further strengthen and expand their bioceramic nanotube surface technologies throughout their portfolio.

Nanovis, a technology-driven company committed to discovering unmet clinical needs, develops innovative and enabling solutions and validates new technologies for clinical and market acceptance. After considerable research to find the right company and system, Nanovis subsidiary, Nanovis Spine chose to private label the Altus Spine pedicle screw systems as a foundation to commercialize Nano FortiFix®, the only FDA designated and cleared nanotechnology pedicle screw system on the market today.  There are three systems that were made available as the result of this partnership – Nano FortFix® (c) Cortical, Nano FortiFix® (s) Standard, and Nano FortiFix® (MIS) Minimally Invasive.

“Nanovis Spine is excited to be working with Altus Spine and we appreciate the opportunity to partner with a great company, team, and system to commercialize our Nano FortiFix® pedicle screw systems,” said Jeff Shepherd, Nanovis Chief Commercial Officer, “As the result of launching Nano FortiFix® in Q3 2021, Nanovis Spine has achieved a record sales month, a record sales quarter, and is on pace to achieve a record sales year.  Nano FortiFix® has been the leading revenue product for Nanovis Spine since our launch and we are gaining new surgeon, distributor, and hospital customers each month because of the nanotechnology designation, data, and meaningful differentiation on pedicle screws.”

The nanoVIS Ti Surface Technology TM platform has continued to out-perform other surfaces in pre-clinical studies and is demonstrating strong biologic fixation in clinical settings. The platform technology continues to show promise in in-vivo studies to reduce bacteria colonization without sacrificing biologic implant fixation. 

“Our team is thrilled to partner with such an innovative company that is utilizing our pedicle screw systems to expand on the surface capabilities,” said Michael Fitzgerald, Altus Spine Founder and CEO. “This partnership is a huge step in the continual expansion using the latest technologies in unique surface architectures for medical devices – a game changer when it comes to safely accelerating fixation,” said Fitzgerald.
