About Benvenue Medical
Founded in 2004, Benvenue Medical, Inc., provides next generation minimally invasive systems for spine repair that combine expandable implants with novel delivery instruments to provide enduring functional benefits for patients. Its first products are designed for the treatment of vertebral compression fractures and degenerative disc disease, which have combined revenues of $9 billion globally.
Benvenue Medical has developed next-generation, minimally invasive implants and devices for the spine based on proprietary flexible Peek and pre-shaped Nitinol technologies.
Kiva® VCF Treatment System is a unipedicular, PEEK-OPTIMA® implant solution for vertebral augmentation and a departure from balloon kyphoplasty, making it the first new approach to the treatment of vertebral compression fractures in over a decade.
Blazer-C® is a vertebral augmentation system that utilizes a unique cannulated curved wire offering mechanical channel creation, predictable cement deposition across the entire vertebral body and an MIS unilateral approach.
Luna® 3D is a multi-expandable, PEEK® interbody implant that is delivered through a minimally-invasive cannula to the disc space and expands in-situ, first to an ALIF-sized footprint and then expands up to 15mm in height.
Be the global leader in minimally invasive restoration of the natural curvature of the spine.
Benvenue Medical develops next generation minimally invasive expandable implant systems for the spine, supported by clinical data.
