Bone Growth Therapies

Healing Bones. Healing lives.

Some patients who experience bone injuries and spinal fusion surgery have difficulty healing. In many of these cases, there are certain health factors that may have impaired the natural healing process of the bones. To help overcome healing challenges, doctors commonly prescribe a treatment called bone growth therapy, otherwise known as bone growth stimulation. Orthofix has two lines of bone growth therapy devices: Spinal Fusion Therapy and Bone Healing Therapy

Spinal Fusion therapy

Bone Growth Therapy was initially used to stimulate the natural healing process in long bone fractures. The treatment proved so successful that scientists studied its effectiveness in healing spinal fusions. The results showed that, when bone growth therapy is used following spinal surgery in high-risk patients, fusion success can be increased when compared to surgery without the treatment.
