Safe, Innovative and Effective Orthopaedic Therapies
Treatments That Stimulate the Body’s Natural Healing Process
Our treatment alternatives may help keep patients out of the hospital, providing therapies that are easily administered either at the patient’s home or in the doctor’s office.
Faster Fracture Healing with EXOGEN
Patients who are recovering from fractures are increasingly turning to EXOGEN to aid their healing process. EXOGEN is the only FDA approved bone growth stimulator that uses ultrasound waves to activate cells near the site of the break. EXOGEN is particularly useful in healing non-union bone fractures that might otherwise require surgery to heal. EXOGEN only requires 20 minutes a day of use, and has been clinically proven to heal 86% of non-union bone fractures.1 EXOGEN can also speed the healing of an indicated* broken tibia or radius by 38% – this could shorten recovery time by weeks.2, 3
Joint Therapies That Ease Pain and Increase Mobility
When osteoarthritis strikes at joints, it depletes the body’s natural lubrication, which can cause so much pain and discomfort that sometimes the entire joint is replaced surgically. Bioventus offers effective joint therapies that:
– Attacks the pain directly in the joints
– Provides pain relief that can last for months
– Re-lubricates the joints for increased mobility
– Improves cartilage integrity that further reduces joint pain
Discover how our joint therapies are the solution osteoarthritis patients need. Our treatments can be administered right in the physician’s office, taking only 10-15 minutes to administer.

*EXOGEN Summary of Indications for Use: The EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System is indicated for the non-invasive treatment of established non-unions† excluding skull and vertebra. In addition, EXOGEN is indicated for accelerating the time to a healed fracture for fresh, closed, posteriorly displaced distal radius fractures and fresh, closed or Grade I open tibial diaphysis fractures in skeletally mature individuals when these fractures are orthopaedically managed by closed reduction and cast immobilization.
There are no known contraindications for the EXOGEN device. Safety and effectiveness has not been established for individuals lacking skeletal maturity; pregnant or nursing women; patients with cardiac pacemakers; on fractures due to bone cancer; or on patients with poor blood circulation or clotting problems.
