NuVasive's acquisition of Ellipse represents its entry into the early onset and idiopathic scoliosis treatment arena, and could lead to partnerships in the treatment of trauma and knee osteoarthritis.

Ellipse's magnetically-adjustable implant systems are based on its MAGnetic External Control (MAGEC®) technology, and include MAGEC−EOS spinal bracing and distraction for treatment of early onset scoliosis and the PRECICE® limb lengthening system.

The acquisition is expected to close in mid-1Q16.
