Medicrea Reports 3Q18 Revenue of €7.3MM, +14.1% vs. 3Q17 -


Medicrea is a French company specializing in spinal surgery using patient-specific implants combined with a proprietary software platform called Adaptive Spine Intelligence (ASI) that integrates artificial intelligence and predictive modeling.

The company posted 3Q18 revenue of €7.3MM (USD $9MM), +14.1% vs. 3Q17, driven by a 90% acceleration of UNiD surgeries in the U.S. UNiD uses patient-specific rods to treat complex spine deformities like scoliosis. This acceleration comes on the heels of the 2017 restructuring of the U.S. salesforce that has led to strong UNiD performance in 2018. In the third quarter, 16 new surgeons performed their first UNiD surgery. Outside of the U.S. in 2018, Medicrea incorporated a Belgian subsidiary and launched a distribution subsidiary in Australia, a market that leadership notes has attractive, stable pricing for premium products.

After the close of the third quarter, the company reached the milestone of 3,000 UNiD ASI surgeries completed. October 2018 saw the highest monthly number of UNiD ASI implants ever, with 121 surgeries performed. ORTHOWORLD projects 2018 Medicrea revenue of $38.7MM, +15.9% vs. 2017.
