Getting under the skin of orthopedic implants

Materials like our PURASORB® polymer are ideal for use in resorbable orthopedic devices and implants. Not only do our solutions meet a wide range of design and processing criteria but they also provide excellent biocompatibility and biodegradability.

Resorbable orthopedic implants containing our biobased materials are today treating a wide range of injuries to the musculoskeletal system in areas like sports medicine, trauma and spinal surgery.

But our solutions don’t just benefit patients, they also benefit our customers: The PURASORB® family can be processed using conventional techniques like extrusion, compression molding and injection molding - and is compatible with various sterilization processes.

Resorbable orthopedic implants

The PURASORB portfolio is available across our Polylactide platform; our PLGA (lactide/glycolide copolymers) platform, and our Capro (lactide/caprolactone copolymers) platform.
