Paradigm Spine is building a pipeline of dynamic stabilization devices based on two core technology platforms: coflex interspinous spacers for stenosis and Orthobiom implants for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. The three-year-old company is rolling out products at a rapid pace: it will have five devices on ex-US markets by the middle of this year.

In the US acceptance of dynamic stabilization devices (DYNs) has been strong owing to the compelling advantages of DYNs over artificial discs, including that they can be implanted from a posterior route, do not violate the disc space and the procedure is reversible. Rather being an alternative to fusion, artificial discs will likely compete with DYNs.
