WishBone Medical said late last week that it acquired Indiana-based spine and orthopedic implant and instrument maker CSpine in an undisclosed deal.
Warsaw, Ind.-based WishBone Medical said that its acquisition of CSpine will help the company enter a key segment in pediatric orthopedics and address the needs of children with spinal deformities.
“Our foundation supporting surgeons could literally throw these kits into their backpacks and take it with them on missions to remote areas all over the globe. We’ll be able to aid children with severe spine issues who wouldn’t be able to afford treatment otherwise,” Wishbone location selection & active chair Rob Seewald said in a prepared statement.
Moving forward, CSpine will operate under the moniker Red Star Medical Solutions, WishBone Medical said in a press release.
“CSpine extends the concept of design for manufacturability to an advanced product development model by leveraging concurrent engineering principles to produce the highest quality products, at the lowest cost, in approximately 1/3 of the time compared to leading orthopedic device companies,” WishBone Medical market dev VP Dr. Robert Wertz said in a press release
Last November, WishBone Medical said that it acquired Turkish pediatric fixation device maker Response Ortho for an undisclosed amount.
