About Ascendx Spine™
Based in Winter Park, Florida, Ascendx Spine™ is a medical device company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative orthopedic devices for the spine and trauma markets. Its initial focus is the Ascendx VCF Repair System for the treatment of a vertebral compression fracture (VCF). A VCF forces a vertebra to collapse and the spinal column above it to assume an abnormal forward curve, resulting in considerable back pain and a hunchbacked appearance.
