BioBoost™ Effect: The Discovery

Scientifically Super...Natural

Discovery of the BioBoost Effect unveils the science behind the seemingly super natural response to the Trabecular Metal Implant. The BioBoost Effect is a multiplication of naturally-occurring growth factors to deliver faster healing and earlier bone formation than traditional implants.1-8

The BioBoost Effect, only available on the Trabecular Metal Implant, is the result of a proprietary combination of cancellous-like porosity and highly-biocompatible tantalum.9-11 With mounting evidence of this clinical advantage in Rapid Recovery, Risk Management, and Revision Therapy cases, harness the healing power of the BioBoost Effect and take your practice to the next level.


1. RAPID RECOVERY - Accelerate healing with a 2-week final loading protocol.12-15

2. RISK MANAGEMENT - Expand treatment in poor bone and impaired healing.16-26

3. REVISION THERAPY -  Leverage the healing advantage in implant replacement.
