When Fusion is Recommended

Fusion is primarily performed to eliminate the pain often caused by abnormal motion of the vertebrae. Fusion is a surgical procedure in which one or more of the vertebrae of the spine are joined together (fused) so that motion no longer occurs between them.

Bone grafting is a surgical technique that involves implanting a bone substitute or extender to help the body achieve spinal fusion. The three essential biologic mechanisms involved in complete bone grafts include osteoconduction (a scaffold for the reparative growth of the natural bone), osteoinduction (signals encouraging undifferentiated cells to become active osteoblasts), and osteogenesis (living bone cells in the graft material contribute to bone remodeling).

Osteocel® Family

Building on a heritage of scientific expertise and clinical experience, over 225,000 patients have been treated with Osteocel bone grafts.1 Osteocel is a comprehensive bone graft developed to mimic the properties of a patient's own bone. Osteocel provides a complete and physiologic bone graft that contains all of the necessary components for bone growth: the cells, the signals, and the scaffold.

Osteocel Patient Brochure

Osteocel is human tissue donated specifically for human clinical use.

AttraX® Family

AttraX Putty is a synthetic, resorbable, osteoconductive bone void filler for the repair of bony defects. The calcium phosphate granules of AttraX Putty have a unique, biotextured™ surface structure that facilitates three-dimensional regeneration of bone in the defect site into which the putty is implanted. The AttraX implant resorbs and is replaced by bone during the natural process of bone remodeling.

Propel™ Family

Propel DBM is donated human cortical bone that has been demineralized to remove the minerals and cells contained in the bone while retaining the collagen matrix and growth factors, including bone morphogenetic protein, inherent to the tissue.  Propel DBM Putty serves as a bone graft extender (extremities, spine, pelvis) and bone void filler of the extremities and pelvis.  Propel DBM Fibers is 100% bone and are available in various shapes and forms.
