About us

Spine Innovations is the newly created spine company which took over all spine business of FH Ortho. Since the change of ownership of FH Ortho on October 30, 2020, Spine Innovations became totally independant from its past parent company.

It is over 25 years since the project started with the idea of Prof Raymond Roy-Camille to develop a lumbar disc prosthesis. After 10 years of research and development, the first LP-ESP has been implanted in 2004 at the university hospital of La Pitié Salpêtrière in Paris.

This was the start of a clinical evaluation of the ESP disc in its lumbar version which led to CE mark in 2006. In 2012, the ESP disc in its cervical version called CP-ESP using the same technology obtained the CE mark.

In 2014, a dedicated spine business unit has been created at its parent company in order to push marketing of both cervical and lumbar disc replacement. Now, the ESP discs are used in over 15 countries worldwide with significant growth until it reached 1 ESP disc implanted every 20 minutes in the world.

Spine Innovations is now based in Heimsbrunn (France) and is aimed to become a leading actor in the total discs replacement worldwide market with its patented viscoelastic technology used in the ESP discs.

The ESP discs are considered as part of the third generation of total disc replacements available in the worldwide market. It allows surgeons to implant a device that mimics the natural disc with similar motion behavior.

At Spine Innovations, our team is dedicated to collaborate with expert surgeons in order to provide most adequate and innovative technologies for the health of their patients.

We are proud to partner with scientific organizations such as the GECO and honored to be the main sponsor of their webinars dedicated to Spine Arthroplasty.
