Osteotec announces exclusive UK and Ireland distribution agreement with SI-BONE

NEWBURY, England, May 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Osteotec, the market-leading manufacturer and distributor of medical devices, is pleased to announce a new partnership with SI-BONE to exclusively distribute the iFuse Implant System® in the UK and Ireland.

The strategic relationship is the newest addition to Osteotec’s rapidly expanding offering to customers, which provides surgeons with innovative solutions.

San Jose, California-based SI-BONE are at the forefront of advancing minimally invasive procedures for the sacroiliac (SI) joint. The iFuse Implant System® is designed to provide immediate SI joint stabilisation and allow long-term fusion.

To date, more than 55,000 minimally invasive surgical SI joint fusions have been performed with the iFuse Implant System® by more than 2,400 surgeons worldwide.

“We are pleased to be expanding our product offering to include the iFuse Implant System®, and to be working with the UK’s top spine surgeons to give them more options, expand our treatment offering and deliver better patient outcomes,” said Dean Stockwell, Osteotec Sales & Marketing Director.

“Our customers have come to anticipate forward-thinking solutions from Osteotec, and this is just one more example of how we are increasing patient treatment options through investment in partnerships with manufacturers who share our values.

“We look forward to working with the SI-BONE team to increase and support sales through our expertise, ensuring our customers enjoy the best possible experience, service, and support in the industry.”

The SI joint is one of the most under-served, under-diagnosed, and under-treated areas in orthopaedics. The iFuse Implant System is intended for sacroiliac fusion for conditions including sacroiliac joint dysfunction that is a direct result of sacroiliac joint disruption and degenerative sacroiliitis.

It is anticipated that the agreement, which went into effect on April 1, 2024, will contribute to substantial increases in sales and revenue and accelerate growth.

“We are excited about working with Osteotec to expand our footprint in the UK and Ireland,” said Neville Lorimer, SI-BONE Vice President, International.

“With the assistance of Osteotec’s talented commercial team and extensive industry knowledge, we will be able to accelerate our strategic objective of providing superior patient outcomes in these markets.”

The two organisations look forward to combining their expertise and technologies to maximise marketing opportunities, increase productivity and improve healthcare outcomes.

“This exclusive distribution agreement builds upon the shared values of both companies and will give our customers more focused support than ever before,” said Dean Stockwell. “We are pleased to be collaborating with an organisation that values excellence as much as we do.”
