Ossio, a fast-growing orthopedic fixation technology company, announced today that it has closed $38.5 million in Series C financing. Along with the participation of OCV Partners, the round was led by MVM Partners, a Boston- and London-based growth equity firm investing in innovative, commercial stage healthcare companies that address high unmet medical needs.
“We are delighted to have secured this level of interest and commitment from such an experienced and distinguished medical technology investment firm,” said OSSIO’s chief executive officer, Brian Verrier. “The additional funding will enable us to accelerate further adoption of OSSIOfiber® Intelligent Bone Regeneration Technology by orthopedic and podiatric surgeons in the United States. Specifically, we intend to use these funds to fortify new product development, sales force expansion, patient outreach and medical education.”
All OSSIO implants are made with OSSIOfiber Intelligent Bone Regeneration Technology, a breakthrough in fixation material that provides the first credible solution to the shortcomings of permanent metal hardware, conventional resorbable and allograft implants, combining unparalleled mechanical strength and natural bone healing in a non-permanent implant. Made from a proprietary mineral fiber matrix held together by a naturally degradable polymer, the technology features bio-integrative material properties that provide surgeons with a more biologically friendly way to restore patient stability and mobility while leaving nothing permanent behind.
Designed for rapid bone in-growth, regeneration and replacement, OSSIOfiber Intelligent Bone Regeneration Technology is a first-of-its-kind implant material stronger than cortical bone. OSSIOfiber is engineered to provide the strength required for functional fixation and allows for full integration into the native anatomy without adverse biological response. OSSIOfiber implants utilize existing reimbursement and surgical techniques.
More than 10,000 OSSIOfiber implants have already been used in orthopedic surgeries since their commercial introduction in 2019.
“We believe that OSSIO’s novel bio-integrative technology has the potential to transform the orthopedic fixation market,” said MVM’s Dr. Stephen Reeders. “We are excited to support the company’s mission to improve patient outcomes across a broad range of procedures.”
Dr. Reeders and his MVM colleague Dr. Kevin Cheng will join OCV Partners on OSSIO’s board of directors as part of this financing.
