ChoiceSpine LLC, a privately held spinal device manufacturer based in Knoxville, TN, successfully announces 3,000 implantations of their innovative 3D Printed Tiger Shark interbody family. Tiger Shark is a 3D manufactured titanium alloy interbody created with a proprietary organic porous structure called BioBond™.
3D-Printed porous titanium Tiger Shark implants are radiolucent allowing for porosity and surface roughness designed into the implant for enhanced bone ingrowth to optimize the fusion environment. “ChoiceSpine is proud to announce the milestone of Tiger Shark cases completed. We believe, with our additive manufacturing process combined with our STRATOFUSE™ Fiber Putty, we are giving surgeons the best outcomes for their patients,” said Marty Altshuler and Rick Henson, Co-Presidents.
The Tiger Shark family includes: Tiger Shark C Cervical Interbody, Tiger Shark Straight Lumbar Interbody System, Tiger Shark TL Passive Curved Interbody System and Tiger Shark L Lateral Interbody System. These implants were designed with generous graft window, large boney ingrowth surface area, and a variety of anatomical footprints to assist in the restoration of sagittal balance with osteointegration possibilities.
