More than 350,000 cervical fusion surgeries are reported to be performed each year in the US. It is also said that the procedure volume is growing at nearly twice the rate of lumbar fusion surgeries. California-headquartered medtech Carlsmed aims to accelerate the deployment of patient-centric technology that revolutionises the standard of care for spine surgery. 

In a recent development, the AI-enabled personalised surgery medtech company has snapped $52.5 million in a Series C funding round. It was co-led by B Capital and US Venture Partners. These proceeds will be used to accelerate the commercialisation of the aprevo® personalised spine surgery platform for lumbar fusion procedures. Also, the company eyes to launch the aprevo® for cervical fusions in 2025.

Personalised to your spine and your unique needs, aprevo® uses advanced algorithms and state-of-the-art 3D modeling to develop individualized surgical plans and devices to help you get your power back. It could be the last spine surgery you will ever need.

aprevo® is designed to match every aspect of your spine and gives your surgeon a personalised plan based on your unique situation and the interbody fusion implants to match that plan. Each implant is designed to support your spine in the planned alignment and provide improved load distribution to protect your spine during healing.
