Pioneer(R) Surgical Technology, Inc. and Bonovo(R) Orthopedics, Inc. Establish Foothold in Fastest Growing Spine Market in the World

Companies launch major product introduction for the 2009 Chinese Orthopaedic Association meeting in Xiamen.

MARQUETTE, Mich., Nov. 17 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Bonovo Orthopedics, Inc., a leading Chinese manufacturer and distributor of orthopedic products, has received government approval to market Pioneer's full portfolio of spinal fusion products.

Bonovo is a sponsor of the Chinese Orthopaedic Association annual meeting - the largest and most international professional spine meeting in that country - and is planning a comprehensive rollout of Pioneer's Quantum® spinal rodding, disc spacer, and cervical plating systems.

Pioneer's Chief Marketing Officer and General Manager of Spinal Operations, Thomas McLeer says, "While it has taken a long time to get these products approved, there is an interesting advantage to have all of these products gaining approval at approximately the same time in that we are hitting the market in 2010 with a complete Pioneer 'fusion system'...not just individual products."

"With Pioneer's leading-edge technology and Bonovo's customer service and support, we are confident that Pioneer Surgical will become the preferred brand by leading orthopedic surgeons throughout China. We are excited to get started," stated Bonovo's CEO, Peter Slate.

Pioneer and Bonovo, in 2008, signed a comprehensive agreement for the distribution and sale of Pioneer products in China with Bonovo serving as Pioneer's exclusive distributor of its products for the Chinese spine market.
