Synergy Spine Solutions, an innovative orthopaedic medical devices developer focused on artificial cervical disc replacement, has announced a distribution partnership with LifeHealthcare, a leading independent medical device distributor, to expand access to the company’s marquis technology, the Synergy Disc®, in Australia and New Zealand.
A company founded by surgeons for surgeons, the vision of Synergy Spine Solutions is to identify and commercialize innovative spine technologies that help surgeons improve their patients’ quality of life and advance the standard of care.
The Synergy Disc® is the only artificial cervical disc with a 6° lordotic core that combines cervical alignment and balance with natural motion for patients with degenerative disc disease (DDD) causing radiculopathy and/or myelopathy.
The distribution agreement builds on both companies’ shared values of providing surgeons in Australia and New Zealand with the latest medical device technologies along with increased focus and support.
Josh Butters, Synergy Spine Solutions CEO, said: “We are delighted to enter into this distribution partnership with the LifeHealthcare team. The expanded geographic coverage, clinical expertise and clinical thought leader exposure that LifeHealthcare brings will help Synergy further realize our mission of expanding the surgeons and patients that have access to the Synergy Disc technology.”
Paul Petherbridge, Executive General Manager Sales, LifeHealthcare, said: “We are pleased to enter this partnership with Synergy Spine Solutions in offering the Synergy cervical disc replacement to surgeons and their patients across Australia and New Zealand. At LifeHealthcare, we strive to play a meaningful role in advancing surgical solutions within the spine surgery space, and we believe this partnership only strengthens that ambition.”
