Minimize Costs While Delivering a Higher Quality of Care
Orthobiologic Treatment Options as Cost-effective Alternatives with Bioventus Active Healing Therapies and Bioventus Surgical
At Bioventus, our goal is to pioneer new treatments rooted in biology – safe, innovative, effective solutions that help patients return to their regular lives. By speeding recovery time while providing less invasive care options when possible, costs can be kept down without sacrificing the high quality of care the patient receives.
Heal Non-union* Fractures Without Surgery
If a patient is dealing with bone fracture that simply isn’t healing, then surgery might be called for, in order to implant plates and screws to help the bone start healing. Before considering this option, patients are increasingly turning to the cost-effective EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System, the only FDA-approved ultrasound product that has demonstrated the ability to accelerate fracture healing.
EXOGEN is a clinically proven alternative therapy to surgery in healing non-union fractures with an 86%1 heal rate. With non-union fracturing healing through use of EXOGEN, both patients and insurance companies avoid having to consider surgical options, with costs that can be in excess of $20,000. While some may initially balk at EXOGEN’s price tag, studies show that EXOGEN has the lowest expected cost ($6,610)2 among bone stimulators.

Non-surgical Pain Relief for Patients Suffering from Osteoarthritis
When osteoarthritis strikes at joints like the knee, the synovial fluid that keeps the joint lubricated is depleted. The lack of lubrication can cause so much wear and tear as to cause significant pain and reduced mobility in the patient.
Our therapies replace the lubricating and shock-absorbing properties of the synovial fluid. Our treatments insert hyaluronic acid (an important ingredient in synovial fluid) directly into the joint, restoring the synovial fluid to its former strength. Not only does this provide long-term pain relief that can lasts for months, but the new lubrication also helps to further reduce joint pain. Our joint injection therapies can be administered right in the physician’s office, without the need for hospital visits.
