The Symphony is catered to patients who suffer from suboptimal bone quality by addressing screw failures and improving fixation. The end-benefit is to help streamline surgical procedures, and develop a more efficient process in the operating room (OR). DePuy Synthes states that their product will help surgeons and OR staff in fixation, alignment, targeting and extensions.

During a release, DePuy Synthes worldwide president, spine, Nadav Tomer said the following:

 “The Symphony system builds on the deep expertise of DePuy Synthes in treating diseases that affect the cervical spine, and we are excited to elevate our existing portfolio by offering this new enhanced solution for the treatment of these debilitating conditions. This launch represents an incredible global opportunity to bring a differentiated solution to surgeons looking for reduced complexity, streamlined procedures and more flexibility in treatment options for their patients.”

When analyzing the spine segment of the orthopedics market, iData determined that Instrumented cervical and thoracolumbar fusions have historically been the standard of care for the treatment of pain. Insurance providers have already recognized the patient need for spinal fusion and subsequently offered favorable reimbursement policies. As the Symphony System from DePuy Synthes is geared towards simplifying surgical procedures, and cervical fixation is preferred by surgeons, this new development can expect to drive positive growth in orthopedics.
