SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Amedica Corporation, a spinal and reconstructive medical device manufacturer, today unveiled its new website, providing the community with a comprehensive resource on Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) for spine interbody fusion procedures and other orthopedic applications. Site enhancements and upgraded navigation capabilities now enable visitors to quickly find information on the company's proprietary FDA-cleared Silicon Nitride technology for spinal fusion procedures, as well as the latest company and industry news. In addition to improvements to the corporate site, surgeons, distributors and other visitors can now learn about the benefits of the ceramic technology at www.siliconnitride.com.
This site provides an in-depth resource on the vast benefits of the ceramic biomaterial as well as short videos and an animation. Visitors will learn why the biomaterial's exceptional properties offer numerous benefits to surgeons and patients alike, especially when compared with other materials used in spinal fusion, such as polyether ether ketone (PEEK) or titanium (Ti).
"As the only company in the world that has the technology and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities to produce medical grade Silicon Nitride for FDA-cleared Interbody Fusion Devices, we want to provide the best on-line resource available for surgeons and others to learn about this important material," said Eric Olson, President and CEO, Amedica.
Earlier this fall, Amedica announced the expansion of biomaterial claims for its Silicon Nitride Interbody Fusion Devices. Data published in two peer-reviewed studies demonstrate that Silicon Nitride provides superior osteointegration and anti-infective capabilities when compared to products comprised of PEEK or titanium.
