Spinal Implant Upgrades
Surgalign launches improved spinal implants
With a broadened choice in sizes and a patented 3D-printed polymer technology, company Surgalign serves surgeons and medical practitioners better than ever. The porosity and 3D printed characteristics of these cages are improvements that benefit the patient without compromising clinical requirements.
The innovation was led by the characteristics that surgeons seek in a spinal implant solution: like primary stability and bony ingrowth. These innovations have them streamline their implant workflow and let both patients and OR-personnel benefit from instrumentation upgrades and patient-specific solutions in implant fit and sizes.

“TiPlus is a great new offering that significantly bolsters the interbody solutions I can offer to my patients, based on their specific clinical need,” said Dr. Jon White, an orthopaedic spine surgeon at Hoag Orthopedic Institute in Irvine, California. “The acid-etched surface and optimized pore size allows for both bone ongrowth and ingrowth, providing confidence in achieving favorable patient outcomes.”

Dr. Aaron Creek, a spine surgeon at The Neck and Back Institute of Florida, in Destin, added, “The expansion of the Fortilink system to include a 3D-printed titanium implant, in addition to the existing TETRAfuse 3D-printed polymer option, is a unique and efficient solution. Utilizing the well-designed Fortilink instrumentation—but with two implant offerings in different biomaterials—allows me to better customize the treatment of my patients.”
The newly developed implants are stronger, fit better due to a larger variety in sizes, and use a patented Titanium 3D printing technology. Surgalign has branded the improved implants under the Fortilink® IBF family, that complement their existing line-up of interbody fusion devices.
