Osteotec, Newbury, England, United Kingdom, has announced its new partnership with Additive Surgical, an Adelaide, Australia, company that produces additively manufactured spinal implant technologies.

This collaboration is said to mark a significant milestone in Osteotec’s expansion into the spine sector. It promises to deliver unparalleled support and advanced solutions to UK orthopaedic and neurosurgeons.

“This partnership is a testament to our dedication to bringing cutting-edge technologies to the UK market,” said Osteotec National Spine Sales Manager Lisa Watts. “By working with Additive Surgical, we can offer surgeons innovative, customisable products that improve patient outcomes. We are excited to integrate Additive Surgical’s differentiated 3D printed implants into our product line-up and offer UK surgeons unparalleled solutions for their patients.”

Additive Surgical’s approach enables surgeons to have significant design input, facilitating rapid iteration and customisation of implant designs, as Additive Surgical believes that it is clinicians who truly understand the unmet clinical needs in spinal surgery and how to design a spine implant to meet these needs.

This clinician-led innovation model has garnered partnerships with leading orthopaedic and neurosurgeons across Australia and New Zealand. Additive Surgical has developed advanced capabilities in biomimetic lattice structures and agile manufacturing processes that allow them to significantly shorten the iterative design-feedback loop. This, in turn, enables their unique approach to medical device development and manufacturing.

The partnership with Additive Surgical will see Osteotec exclusively distribute its novel spinal implant technologies across the UK.

Gibran Maher, CEO and co-founder of Additive Surgical, stated, “Our collaboration with Osteotec is an exciting step forward in our mission to bring cutting-edge spinal implant technology to the global market. Osteotec’s longstanding reputation and deep connections within the UK medical community make them an ideal partner to introduce our innovative 3D printed solutions to UK surgeons. We can’t wait to officially launch in the UK market in the spring of 2025.”
