How does 3D printing technology work for spine surgery?

The HEDRON spacer features a groundbreaking porous scaffold that is sturdy, promotes bone growth throughout the implant, and is easy to place surgically, requiring smaller incisions. The HEDRON IA spacer offers an internal architecture that demonstrates higher levels of bone ingrowth for a superior surgical outcome. This allows for more reliable spinal fusions that heal quicker and likely provide better overall outcomes.

Who is a candidate for the device?

The HEDRON IA Integrated Lumbar Spacers can bring relief to patients suffering from low back pain who have failed non-surgical treatment. The 3D printed spacer features a porous scaffolding developed to trigger a cellular response with bone formation onto and throughout the implant. The implant, in studies, demonstrated a significantly higher level of bone growth post-operatively when compared to PEEK porous implants or titanium implants.

Minimally invasive spine surgery

The HEDRON IA may be the optimal solution for a range of spinal conditions, including:

  • Herniated disk
  • Degenerative disk disease
  • Damaged or fractured vertebrae
  • Spinal deformities
  • Unstable vertebrae
  • Spinal stenosis

The implanted device must encourage the growth of bone cells in and around the spacer, creating a scaffold upon which new bone cells will grow, eventually fusing them, similar to how the body naturally heals a fracture. Various implants have been designed and implanted over time, and the HEDRON IA is a significant advance.

What is the procedure?

Lumbar spinal fusion may be recommended to treat various spine conditions. The procedure involves placing an incision in the area to access the damaged vertebrae.

Dr. Rovner offers minimally invasive spine surgery, with smaller incisions, minimize scarring, lower risk of infections, and a faster recovery period.

The HEDRON IA provides the benefit of requiring smaller incisions and reduced exposure to potential complications. This approach to spine surgery reduces the risk of damage to the surrounding muscles and tissues.
