Spinal Surgery Research using AlloStem  |  October 29, 2010

Account from the North American Spine Society meeting

AlloSource recently showcased AlloStem Bone Graft Substitute at this year’s NASS meeting in Orlando.  Dr. Eubulus Kerr, a spinal surgeon from Shreveport Louisiana, presented a review of his clinical usage of AlloStem tissue in spine fusion procedures. Dr. Kerr presented follow-up from cervical and lumbar fusion cases with up to six months of follow up and very encouraging early results. Many of the attending surgeons stayed after the presentation had formally ended to discuss the AlloStem technology with attendees and AlloSource staff.  One surgeon who attended the seminar has already completed his first surgery with the AlloStem tissue, implanting the tissue for spinal fusion.

The conference validated that live cellular products are the direction the industry is heading, so stay tuned.
