NEW YORK and EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I., May 1, 2020 — HealthpointCapital, the leading private equity firm focused exclusively on musculoskeletal healthcare, today announced the acquisition of a majority stake in IlluminOss Medical, Inc. (“IlluminOss” or the “Company”).
IlluminOss offers a unique and disruptive technology for the orthopedic trauma market. The Company’s Photodynamic Bone Stabilization System is a minimally invasive approach for fracture repair and stabilization through a patient-specific intramedullary implant. The system utilizes a light-curable liquid polymer, contained within an expandable balloon, to create a patient-conforming, rigid implant within the bone canal. The technology is particularly suited for the fast-growing elderly patient population. It enables increased stability for osteoporotic and compromised bone, as well as early mobilization. IlluminOss can be also used in conjunction with cleared plates, screws and nails for supplemental fixation in compromised bone.
