Solutions That Are Innovative and Cost-effective

At Bioventus, we understand that in today’s healthcare climate, cost-control has become more critical than ever. We are bringing innovations for active healing to the forefront of medicine and providing cost-effective solutions for Pain Treatments and Joint Therapies, Restorative Therapies and Bone Graft Solutions for patients.

Alternatives to More Invasive Procedures

Our goal is to develop safe, innovative, and effective solutions that help patients return to their regular lives. By speeding recovery time while providing less invasive care options when possible, costs can be kept down without sacrificing the high quality of care the patient receives.

We have a different approach that does not involve drugs or and in some cases, can delay or avoid surgery. In addition, many of our products are easily administered either at the patient’s home, in the doctor’s office or rehabilitation center.

Bioventus has a team of specialists with both medical and payer backgrounds who are ready to work directly with payers regarding reimbursement, products and our capabilities.

Heal Non-union* Fractures Without Surgery

A good example of minimizing costs while delivering high quality care is easily seen with the EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System. If a patient is dealing with bone fracture that simply isn’t healing, then surgery might be called for, in order to implant plates and screws to help the bone start healing. Before considering this option, patients are increasingly turning to the cost-effective EXOGEN system, the only FDA-approved ultrasound product that has demonstrated the ability to accelerate fracture healing.

EXOGEN is a clinically proven alternative therapy to surgery in healing non-union fractures with an 86%1 heal rate. With non-union fracturing healing through use of EXOGEN, both patients and insurance companies avoid having to consider surgical options, with costs that can be in excess of $20,000. While some may initially balk at EXOGEN’s price tag, studies show that EXOGEN has the lowest expected cost ($6,610)2 among bone stimulators.

*EXOGEN Summary of Indications for Use: The EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System is indicated for the non-invasive treatment of established non-unions† excluding skull and vertebra. In addition, EXOGEN is indicated for accelerating the time to a healed fracture for fresh, closed, posteriorly displaced distal radius fractures and fresh, closed or Grade I open tibial diaphysis fractures in skeletally mature individuals when these fractures are orthopaedically managed by closed reduction and cast immobilization.

There are no known contraindications for the EXOGEN device. Safety and effectiveness has not been established for individuals lacking skeletal maturity; pregnant or nursing women; patients with cardiac pacemakers; on fractures due to bone cancer; or on patients with poor blood circulation or clotting problems. Some patients may be sensitive to the ultrasound gel. Full prescribing information can be found in product labeling, at www.exogen.com or by contacting customer service at 1-800-396-4325.

†A non-union is considered to be established when the fracture site shows no visibly progressive signs of healing.
