Using micro implants smaller than a dime to treat painful regions of the spine, ION is 30mm-40mm smaller than traditional pedicle screws.
Developed with osteointegration in mind, the hydrophilic surface created by Nanotex® takes advantage of ionic bonds to attract and hold BMA & other fluids that may contain key growth factors.
Most often performed in an outpatient surgery center, it was designed with safety in mind and to help provide patients with a less invasive solution than traditional spine surgery.

INDICATIONS FOR USE/INTENDED USE
The Ion Facet Screw product family is intended to be used for bilateral vertebral facet joint fixation. It accomplishes this by allowing the surgeon to access the facet joint and prepare the site for a titanium implant. The Facet Screw product family provides controlled access to the surgical site to allow the surgeon to locate, drill, and implant in a facet joint.
The Ion Facet Screw system will include a k-wire for initial targeting of the facet joint, a cannulated facet locator tool, a cannulated drill guide, drill bits, and a titanium screw with an inserter.
All steel, SOLVAY Ketaspire and titanium components will be provided to the hospital nonsterile in a steam sterilization tray and must be sterilized prior to use.
