Welcome to Merlot OrthopediX, a Joint Venture Start-Up between

Cleveland Clinic and Frantz Medical Development Ltd.

Merlot OrthopediX, Inc. is an early stage medical technology company whose mission is to develop, refine and build value into the Merlot bone anchorage technology. The Merlot implant technology can be applied to spine, trauma and general orthopedic applications.

Based on an innovative concept from a leading spine surgeon, Dr. Isador Lieberman, Merlot OrthopediX offers a groundbreaking bone anchorage solution - a patent-protected open helix bone screw. Complimentary technology has been added to the patent portfolio during development of the first clinical application.

Merlot OrthopediX announced that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Alphatec Spine, Inc., a medical device company providing treatment solutions for spine disorders with a focus on treating conditions that affect the aging spine, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Alphatec Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:ATEC), to develop and commercialize Merlot’s novel bone anchorage technology for use in spine surgery.
Merlot is continuing to explore strategic partnerships for commercialization of the Merlot technology in trauma and fracture fixation applications.
