UK's National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) Offers Guidance Supporting Bioventus' EXOGEN Device

DURHAM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--New guidance from a British health agency released earlier this month supports the use of an ultrasound bone healing device that can be an alternative to surgery for thousands of patients with ‘problem’ fractures.

The guidance from NICE assessed both the clinical effects and the potential cost savings of the EXOGEN® Ultrasound Bone Healing System, which uses a unique ultrasound signal to stimulate broken bones to heal naturally, in comparison to surgical management. The product, manufactured by U.S.-based Bioventus LLC and distributed in the UK by Smith & Nephew, has been used worldwide since 1997 and is currently the market leader in the US for fracture stimulation.
