ACADIA™ Facet Replacement System (ACADIA™)


ACADIA™ Design Rationale:

  • The ACADIA™ Facet Replacement System (ACADIA™) design is based on an extensive study of intact facet joints. By analyzing the facet joints, an implant was designed to restore and mimic natural kinematics and range of motion.
  • The implant is machined from a super-alloy with highly polished articulating surfaces. The backing of the implant that interfaces with the bone is coated with material to promote bony in-growth.
  • The implant is secured to the bone with conventional pedicle screws. Separate implants are used for both the top and bottom facets. these implants come in a variety of sizes to meet the patient’s specific anatomy.
  • The ACADIA™ utilizes precision instrumentation that combined with anatomic implants enables surgeons to reconstruct normal facet anatomy, restore physiological motion and stability to the lumbar spine, while alleviating pain.
