Inc., a medical device company focused on developing and commercializing
spinal implants for the rapidly growing posterior lumbar motion
preservation market, announced today that they have moved into
their new corporate headquarters in Logan, Utah. The completion
of the new state of the art facility provides the company with
the infrastructure to achieve its strategic plan of bringing
spine motion preservation devices to market.
Facet Solutions has developed the ACADIA™ Facet Replacement System (ACADIA™), the first anatomic facet arthroplasty device
designed to provide lumbar spinal stenosis and facet degeneration
patients with a motion preserving alternative to fusion. Currently,
the company is involved in an FDA approved Investigational Device
Exemption (IDE) clinical study in the United States for the ACADIA™ Facet Replacement System (ACADIA™).
“Our new facility, combined with our world class team,
will allow us to continue our aggressive efforts to provide spine
motion preservation alternatives to patients,” stated Alan

move marks another significant milestone in the evolution of
Facet Solutions, and we are confident that the ACADIA™ will

in the beautiful Cache Valley. “We greatly benefit from
the local well-educated and hard-working labor force; as well
as the synergy from the other medical device companies that have
flourished in the area,” said Chervitz.
The Facet Solutions ACADIA™ implants are anatomically designed
and utilize conventional pedicle screw fixation. The implants
are placed with precision instrumentation that creates reliable
and reproducible results. The benefit of anatomic design and
precision instrumentation makes the ACADIA™ the ultimate
in motion preservation solutions; allowing surgeons to provide
patients with pain relief while restoring natural motion and
stability at the effected lumbar level.
