DeGen Medical, Inc., a leading spinal implant manufacturer, has unveiled its new Solar AM implant. Dr. Peter Derman and Dr. Alexander Satin, renowned surgeons from the Texas Back Institute, recently made history by performing the first surgeries using this technology at the Texas Health Center for Diagnostics and Surgery in Plano, Texas.
The Solar AM implant is the latest addition to DeGen Medical’s Puri-Ti portfolio, designed for anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) procedures. This implant introduces a host of innovztive features, including a proprietary additive manufacturing process that promises to set a new industry standard.
