Expanding Orthopedics Inc. (EOI), a privately held medical device company focused on developing and commercializing innovative expandable devices for spine surgery, today announced that it has achieved substantial growth of its innovative FLXfit™ expandable cage in the second half of 2016, with more than 100% revenue growth compared to the same period in 2015.
David Elkaim, VP Sales & Marketing says that "This growth continues to demonstrate the rapid surgeons' adoption of the company's unique FLXfit articulated and lordotic expandable cage". He added "The last six months of 2016 have seen an accelerated growth with US surgeons adopting the FLXfit as their preferred TLIF, expandable option.
