“What’s so amazing is that Dr. Edward C. Benzel is one of AANS’s honored guests and was also one of the initial three Founders of AxioMed before it was acquired by KICVentures, so it’s appropriate that the AxioMed Freedom Disc will be on display for attendees to learn about.”

KICVentures will exhibit its portfolio companies, AxioMed, NanoFUSE, and SpineFrontier at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting in San Diego, CA on April 13-17th, 2019 at Booth #2106.
“AANS is a great opportunity for us to introduce innovative, clinically-proven technology that surgeons might not have the opportunity to learn about otherwise,” said Professor Kingsley R. Chin, M.D., the Founder and CEO of KICVentures. “What’s so amazing is that Dr. Edward C. Benzel is one of AANS’s honored guests and was also one of the initial three Founders of AxioMed before it was acquired by KICVentures, so it’s appropriate that the AxioMed Freedom Disc will be on display for attendees to learn about.”
Dr. Chin continued, “With the recent renewal of the CE Mark on the AxioMed Freedom® Cervical Disc, the disc’s popularity continues to grow overseas — across Europe, Asia, and Australia. We are also seeing strong NanoFUSE adoption internationally — all the way to New Zealand. KICVentures believes that its portfolio companies NanoFUSE, AxioMed, and SpineFrontier will continue to disrupt spine surgery internationally. KICVentures and its portfolio companies have raised over $10 million in growth capital over the last two years including international investors and surgeons.”
NanoFUSE Biologics will be featured at an event by keynote speaker Professor Fassil Mesfin, M.D., Dr. Mesfin will present on “How NanoFUSE Bioactive Glass is Replacing Human Tissue for Spinal Fusion and Bone Healing” and on “Revolutionizing Percutaneous Pedicle Screws in the Era of Robotics.” The event will take place on the evening of Monday, April 15th from 5:30-6:30 pm at the Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter.
