Globus Prepared for Trek with $110m from Clarus-led Group

Clarus Ventures placed an unusually big bet for the orthopedics industry by leading a syndicate of private equity investors in a $110 million Series E round in Globus Medical Inc. But the four-year-old company is well ahead of its peers with more than $100 million in sales and a line of fusion products on the market. The company faces the challenge of introducing a new line of non-fusion and biomaterial products if it hopes to grow into the industry leader its investors expects it to be.

The Hot Trend in Spine: Motion Preservation Mania

While products for fusing the spine remain the backbone of the booming market for spinal implants and instruments, there's a new focus on motion preservation. These technologies--for lumbar and cervical disc replacement, nucleus replacement, posterior stabilization,and pedicle screw-based systems--promise a host of new procedures to treat patients with symptomatic back pain who are earlier in the degenerative process.

Dynamic Stabilization Rocks Spine

In the US acceptance of dynamic stabilization devices (DYNs) has been strong owing to the compelling advantages of DYNs over artificial discs, including that they can be implanted from a posterior route, do not violate the disc space and the procedure is reversible. Rather being an alternative to fusion, artificial discs will likely compete with DYNs.
