Junsun Medical is a leading manufacturer of medical-grade Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) materials, including PEEK rod that are suitable for use in spinal implants. PEEK is an excellent implant material due to its biocompatibility, mechanical strength, and chemical resistance. Compared to traditional implant materials like titanium and stainless steel, PEEK has several advantages that make it an ideal choice for spinal implants.
One of the key benefits of using Junsun Medical’s PEEK rods for spinal implants is their radiolucency. Unlike metal implants, which can interfere with imaging studies like X-rays and MRI scans, PEEK is transparent to these imaging modalities. This allows medical practitioners to more accurately monitor the healing progress following spinal surgeries without the need for additional procedures or tests.
Another advantage of PEEK rods is their modulus of elasticity, which is similar to that of human bone. This means that PEEK implants can more evenly distribute stress throughout the spinal column, reducing the risk of stress shielding and other complications that can arise with stiffer implant materials.
Finally, Junsun Medical’s PEEK rods are available in various sizes and grades, making them suitable for a wide range of spinal surgeries. Whether for fusion procedures or dynamic stabilization, Junsun Medical’s PEEK rods offer a reliable and long-lasting solution for spinal implants.
