Pioneer Surgical Technology Enters the Biologics Extremities and Pelvis Market


3/8/2011 8:23:05 AM

RALEIGH, N.C., March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pioneer Surgical Technology today announces the market launch of their new portfolio of biologic products, designed to be used in extremities and pelvis.

The new portfolio will be showcased during the 2011 American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS) convention in Fort Lauderdale this week. Pioneer Surgical Technologys newest Biologics product, Legato, will be included. Legato is a resorbable, collagen-based implant that acts as a scaffold for the in-growth of new bone and is designed to have broad appeal in repairing bony defects in the extremities and pelvis, including those caused by trauma. In addition, Legato forms a cohesive and adhesive product easily shaped to defects while maximizing direct contact with host bone.

Regarding Pioneers latest product introduction Mr. Shane Ray, General Manager Biologics for Pioneer stated, We are very pleased to expand our product offerings with Legato into the extremities, trauma and general othopaedics market. Our goal has always been to establish highly effective products first in spine and now expanding into additional high growth markets such as extremities. We saw incredible sales growth in 2010 and are executing our 2011 growth plans to expand our product offerings within and outside the United States.

For more information regarding Pioneers Biologics Foot and Ankle offerings including Legato, please visit the Pioneer Surgical website at www.pioneersurgical.com.
