What is nanoLOCK® Surface Technology?
Shortly after launching our original surface in 2007 and witnessing how well patients were responding to our technology, we challenged ourselves to make it even better. We began working with some of the brightest minds in biomaterial sciences to investigate ways to improve the bone formation response to our implants.
How did we do that? By incorporating a significantly greater amount of the microscopic and nanoscopic features that are found on natural bone.1
And it is the only technology with access to the CMS new technology code for nanotextured interbody devices. It is the recipient of several awards, including the prestigious Whitecloud Award for best basic science, and has been used as an example of commercialized nanotechnology success in medicine by the White House Office of Science and Technology as part of the National Nanotechnology Initiative. nanoLOCK® was commercially launched in August of 2016.
Oh, and did we mention that it is guaranteed to fuse?
