April 17th 2014–Last October 2013, it was announced that Frontier Medical Devices have signed with Zimmer an exclusive global distribution agreement for the Lateral Locking Cage (LLC), a first of its kind, minimally invasive lateral interbody cage. Under the terms of this long-term agreement with Frontier Medical
Devices (Marquette, Mich.), Zimmer Spine will exclusively market the LLC to healthcare professionals worldwide.Now, this Company specialized in making tools and implants for spinal surgery is growing and changing very fast. Frontier Medical Devices was founded only about four years ago in collaboration with Orthopedic Specialist Dr. Matthew Songer. Initially, the company was a pretty small operation. Now, their products are distributed worldwide and they have moved into a bigger location.”At the facility here we produce both the implant and the tools used in the surgery. So the device is for minimally invasive correction of spinal disorders,” said John Sonderegger, Chief Financial Officer of Frontier Medical Devices.”When we first founded we just began with a Post Office Box, but we began this lease just about four years ago this spring,” said Sonderegger.As the company has grown in the last few years, there is no sign of slowing down.
