Illinois-based Medline Industries acquired key spine surgery technologies from Georgia-based Amendia, the companies announced this month.
Medline nabbed Amendia’s anterior cervical fusion distraction pin business, part of a market that Medline expects to grow more than 8% annually. The technologies are used in surgeries for removing problem disks in the neck area of the spine.
The grab allows Medline to put a bow on its Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion surgical suite, the company said.
"We are expanding our product portfolio to meet all of our customers’ needs across the continuum of care," Medline operating room division president Rob Lockwood said in prepared remarks. "Now that we will be offering our own distraction pins, surgical instruments and other necessary medical and surgical supplies, we have everything a facility needs to help provide the best care and patient outcomes."
The companies did not disclose the terms of the deal, but did say that the agreement includes both the design and the regulatory pathway for the anterior cervical fusion distraction pin business.
