Vertebron: Is it on Life Support
Word on the street is that Vertebron is on life support. Its been a long time, whew! Incubated around 2002 or 2003 by former employees of Surgical Dynamics and Howmedica, this company has gone through multiple and controversial management changes. Can't we get along? While attending NASS, rumor surfaced that Cardo Medical based in Los Angeles was attempting to raise capital to acquire Vertebron. If there is any truth to this rumor, good luck raising capital in this economy. It would make sense considering Cardo Medical has Vertebron's Cervical Plate and Pedicle Screw on its website. Has anyone heard otherwise? The Spineblogger wants to know!
