HAPPE Spine announces that the first clinical case with the INTEGRATE-C Interbody Fusion System was completed by co-inventor and neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Smith, MD, at the Beacon Health System – Memorial Hospital in South Bend, Indiana.
INTEGRATE-C is an interbody fusion cage that is fully integrated with porosity and hydroxyapatite to provide a superior healing environment. Interconnected, cancellous porosity promotes bone ingrowth from endplate-to-endplate. Hydroxyapatite is exposed on all surfaces to promote cell signaling and bone on-growth. The INTEGRATE-C is both radiovisible and radiolucent for superior intra-operative imaging and post-operative assessment of fusion.
