Success Story BIOVENTUS

Global Implementation Using united VARs

Bioventus creates bone healing therapies that work to enhance the body’s natural healing process, thereby accelerating recovery and improving the patient’s quality of life.

Their injection therapies that treat osteoarthritic joints relieve pain and help bring mobility back to the patient. Their therapies may also reduce the need for invasive procedures, leading to more cost-effective outcomes than previously possible.

Bioventus’ products are known for their safety, innovation, and effectiveness. The company focuses its medical product development around its core competencies of orthobiologic therapies and orthopaedic diagnostics.
