OrthoSon is using ultrasound technology to develop a safe and cost-effective procedure for the treatment of degenerative disc disease, for which the current therapy is vertebral fusion.

The procedure is a minimally-invasive, incision-free, first-line therapy designed to restore the biomechanical properties to degenerated spinal discs. By injecting proprietary Sono-Sensitive Particles (SSPs) into the nucleus pulposus of spinal discs and applying focussed ultrasound at a high intensity, degenerate disc nuclei are broken down and removed, allowing a replacement hydrogel material can be injected to restore healthy biomechanics
