Phoenix Bone Tech

The most widespread type of implants to date are made of titanium. Their function: only temporary stabilization and fixation until the bone is healed - afterwards, the permanent implants remain "functionless" in the body, and can give rise to foreign body reactions. Phoenix Bone Tech have established a completely new standard in orthopaedic surgery, by developing biodegradable and bioresorbable composite implants, which are able to provide support until the bone has re-established enough load-bearing capacity, from which time on, the implant is no longer needed, is further absorbed, and remodelled into bone tissue, removing the need for the second surgery and thus, avoiding all the clinical complications and costs that are associated with it.
