Heraeus Medical offers solutions for the fixation of joint implants and for the management of infections. Heraeus Medical thus creates added value for patients, medical professionals and the healthcare system. Treatments for degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system are highly specialised, costly and resources are limited. Patients often have to live with pain and mobility restrictions for long periods of time. Heraeus Medical is committed to developing effective, safe and affordable solutions to this challenge.
PALACOS® bone cement is probably the best-known product from Heraeus. For more than 50 years, PALACOS® bone cements with and without gentamicin have enabled effective treatment of hip and knee arthroplasties.
Based on the same raw materials as the proven bone cement PALACOS® the OSTEOPAL® portfolio brings two spinal cements which meet the exacting demands of vertebral body augmentation.
