DSM in Medical

Spine Market: Biostructural, Scaffold and Cellular Solutions

A portfolio of materials to enhance clinical outcomes

The spine industry has seen a high rate of advancements in recent years based on material and design adjustments. DSM is actively partnering and co-developing in spine to design and develop minimally-invasive, and superiorly-integrated spine solutions.

DSM has a broad portfolio of biomaterials with a deep knowledge of how to apply them to medical devices for specific clinical settings. We are positioned to take advantage of the trend of finding a better solution.

Our comprehensive portfolio of materials for orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons specializing in spine surgery, includes synthetic bone graft substitutes, cerclage cables, resorbable fixation plates and more.

Advancing Spine through Disruptive Technologies

Developing the most beneficial biomedical solutions is about looking to the future and finding new ways to address unmet needs. DSM is always planning for and investing in future applications, new technologies and better ways to produce and apply technology.
