FUSIO The Next Generation in Facet Fusion

FUSIO is manufactured and distributed by Frontier Devices, a division of Folsom Metal Products.

A truly unique 3rd generation facet fusion system, FUSIO enables the spine surgeon to stabilize a diseased intervertebral joint in the spinal column, otherwise known as the facet joint. By utilizing proprietary instrumentation to implant an allograft tissue deep in the facet, the surgeon distracts the intervertebral space promoting stabilization, pain relief, and fusion.

FUSIO is commonly used for:
  • Pain from degeneration of the facet joint
  • Patients suffering from spinal instability due to spondylolisthesis, Grade 1 or less
  • Prevention of instability following spinal laminectomy/decompression procedures
  • Adjunct to lumbar interbody fusion
  • Adjunct to motion limiting devices
  • Revisions to supplement segment instability after hardware removal or for failed/loosening hardwareFacet

Fusio Facet Fusion System is contraindicated for patients who have gross spinal instability, greater than grade 1 spondylolisthesis, infection, tumor or severe osteoporosis.

Why is FUSIO a leading choice among all facet fusion products?

FUSIO is the only facet dowel system that uses a technique based approach to prevent dowel migration.

Using the FUSIO proprietary Anti-MigrationReamer, the surgeon creates a void deep in the facet while leaving a cortical rim intact. It is this cortical rim that prevents migration of theallograft dowel promoting spinal stability and an environment for boney fusion.

FUSIO's advanced delivery system providesthe surgeon an effective and reproduciblesolution for managing spinal instability andfacet mediated low back pain.
