Reasons to Invest

  • FloSpine currently offers and is developing new spinal fusion implants and instrumentation that, in our view, will allow surgeons to address 90% of patient needs. The orthopedic implant industry is characterized by very high gross profit margins with. FloSpine's Gross Margins on its products at 70-90%.
  • The US is the biggest market for spinal implants, estimated $7.0 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach $12.2 billion by 2024, with 5% CAGR (source)

  • FloSpine’s leadership has over 40 years of spine and orthopedic experience. Peter Harris, President and CEO has worked for very successful start-up companies, including K2M which sold to Stryker for $1.4 B in 2018.  


We’ve Got Your Back®

We are FloSpine - and we have a new solution for back pain. We believe we’re a leading medical device company whose goal is to apply new technology and design concepts to solve medical problems of the human spinal column. 

A Unique Expandable Interlaminar Implant

FloSpine’s new minimally invasive KeyLift™ implant will potentially offer a unique solution to the problem of back pain, which may eliminate the traditional placement of screws and rods in a patient's spine to correct spinal stenosis and relieve pain.

In addition, due to the smaller incision required for the KeyLift™ device, the procedure may be performed on an outpatient basis in an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC). Patients may be discharged after a couple of hours following the procedure and may immediately feel some pain relief.

Here are some of KeyLift’s™ specs:

  • The KeyLift™ Device may be inserted through a small incision (about 2 inches). This leads to faster patient recovery and less blood loss
  • Fits in-between the two laminae of the spine and is expanded to release the nerve root pressure once in the patient. (Each vertebra has a lamina that is the bridge of bone that covers the spinal cord). This is advantageous as the bone is thicker in this region, less chance of bone cracking

*The above is a rendering of a future product. Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development with the FDA and is not yet available on the market.

Spinal Stenosis occurs when a patient's disc starts to collapse causing the existing nerve roots and spinal cord to get pinched. The KeyLift™ is designed to restore the height between the 2 affected vertebrae, thereby releasing the pinched nerves and bringing relief to the patient.

  • We feel it is the only expandable interlaminar implant on the market that can expand in-situ. 4mm of expansion is available.
  • The KeyLift™ implants are available in a variety of sizes allowing the surgeon to choose the best anatomical fit for the patient. 

*The above is a rendering of a future product. Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development with the FDA  and is not yet available on the market.

  • Anti-migration ridges on the implants that can prevent dislodgement
  • Proposed in 2 different lengths and 4 different heights. This can give the surgeon a choice of implants to fit the patient's anatomy 
  • We believe that each KeyLift device will sell between $6,500 to $9,000 giving FloSpine a Gross Margin of over 95%

FloSpine Background

FloSpine is focusing on minimally invasive surgical techniques which we believe will  result in shorter hospital stays and faster recovery for patients, and we’ve already accomplished this with our Largo®, Canaveral®, and Panama® products

FloSpine has assembled a team of leading surgeons across the US who advise FloSpine Engineers with design and development of groundbreaking new products. 

We also have a large number of surgeons who consistently use current FloSpine products in their patients to treat a variety of spine conditions. World famous Dr. Richard Guyer has endorsed FloSpine’s Minimally Invasive Pedicle Screw System (source) and has used the system on some of his patients. Dr. Guyer is well known for performing successful back surgery on legendary golfer Tiger Woods in 2017 (source).

*The above product images are computer-generated renderings of products currently available on the market.

The Problem

It is estimated that 70% to 80% of American adults will experience back pain at some point in their lives


We believe back pain is the leading symptom prompting visits to orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons, and the second leading symptom prompting visits to primary care physicians. On top of that, Approximately 250-500 K US residents have symptoms of spinal stenosis (source).

And when it comes to the traditional fusion to treat these patients,  surgeons typically place screws and rods into the patient’s spine and perform a fusion between the affected vertebras. This usually entails a large incision and a longer recovery, typically with an overnight hospital stay (source).

Interbody fusions (fusing of the spinal vertebra) is the most commonly performed spinal procedure in the United States, with over 352,000 performed annually (source). 

There has also been a growing shift in patient care that has been exacerbated since the Covid-19 pandemic, as patients have become more reluctant to spend overnight in hospitals and prefer to have their procedures performed in a surgery center (source).

The Market

Global spinal implants and surgical devices market is expected to generate $17.5 Billion in revenue by 2024, growing at 5.80% CAGR

In our view, pain management procedures in ASC’s are becoming more popular as pain management physicians are reducing the use of opioids and are increasingly using mechanical spinal implant devices.

Our KeyLift™ device is placed in-between the lamina of the spine - which consists of thicker bone and has large teeth that will prevent migration of the implant. With that, we believe the KeyLift™ has the potential to capture a large market share, as we feel it will be the only expandable interlaminar device on the market.

Recently, a minimally invasive spinous process spacer implant was acquired in a deal for $465M (source).

Our Traction

We believe the KeyLift™ will be the first expandable interlaminar device on the market 

FloSpine already has 3 FDA cleared products and has generated over $8.7 million in revenue since our initial product launch in 2015, with 20,000+ implants in patients. But the launch of the KeyLift will usher in a new product with an even more exciting customer pathway through interventional spine. 

Not to mention, FloSpine has added additional surgeons and four new hospital system accounts. This gives FloSpine access to hundreds of hospitals nationwide.

Here’s a look at our existing innovations:

Cervical Spine: The Panama® Anterior Cervical Plate System is used to stabilize a fusion in the cervical spine. It is commercially available to treat up to a 5 level cervical fusion.

Lumbar and Thoracic Spine: The Canaveral® Pedicle Screw System consists of 3 separate products that are commercially available to treat conditions like degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, and minimally invasive spine surgery.

FloSpine’s Canaveral™ Deformity (Scoliosis) System


FloSpine aims to eventually incorporate a B2C model, but for now our target markets are…

  • Hospitals & Surgery Centers - 4,500 US hospitals and over 9,000 active ambulatory surgery centers. FloSpine is currently approved and has contracts with some of the largest hospital systems in the country, including Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), Tenet Health and Bon-Secours/Mercy Health Systems.
  • Sales Representatives - Recruit, contract, train and deploy over 200 in-direct spine sales representatives (1099’s).
  • Surgeons - Majority of the sales with the KeyLift System will be generated by Interventional Pain Management Surgeons in Surgery Centers.

Why Invest

We have a new solution for back pain 

And with that, we believe FloSpine is poised with its current and new products to take advantage of this growing trend.

FloSpine Receives Positive Analyst Review From KingsCrowd

FloSpine’s Back Pain Technology Could Be Just What the Doctor Ordered

Author: Teddy Lyons - KingsCrowd

Category: Analyst Report, Deal to Watch

A Pain in the Back

My 32-year-old brother recently went through a grueling episode of back pain. In all honesty, it was hard to watch. He couldn’t walk for months or play with his four-year-old daughter. He ended up needing extensive back surgery to alleviate his debilitating pain. No other options were available to him given his pain level.

We all know back pain is going to hit us at some point in life. For some, like my brother, it happens far too early. For others, it may not come until old age.

But we can all agree on one thing: Back pain sucks.

Even worse is making a brutal decision between getting surgery or trying alternative forms of treatment. While getting rods and screws surgically inserted into your spine will alleviate pain, it is an expensive and daunting decision. Other options, like physical therapy, spinal cord stimulators, painkillers, or other types of therapy, can be ineffective.

Simply put, there is no intermediate option for patients who have tried alternative forms of therapy but do not want to have a full-blown surgery to insert rods and screws.

Until now.

FloSpine, the company I’m introducing to you today, has created a revolutionary new device called the KeyLift.

Picture a spine that has two compressed vertebrae that are pinching the nerves!

The KeyLift device clamps on to one of the strongest, thickest parts of the spine (called the lamina). It then expands and releases the compression, providing a chance for instant relief.

The best part? This is a minimally invasive procedure that takes about an hour to complete. And it can be done on an outpatient basis. In other words, no hospital visit or overnight stay is required.

No other company has released a device like this. The closest competitor is Boston Scientific’s Superion product, which was purchased from Vertiflex for $465 million in 2019 with annual sales of ~$50 million. The Superion implant doesn’t clamp onto any portion of the spine. It basically just sits in between the vertebrae as a spacer, and may migrate over time. In fact, the Vertiflex product received more than 300 complaints last year on the FDA Maude database. Given its advantages over Vertiflex, FloSpine is in a good position to capture market share with its innovative KeyLift device.

How It Works

Right now, the most common treatments for back pain are medication, physical therapy, cortisol injections, and, of course, surgery.

There is an enormous gap in the back pain treatment market. There is a clear need for a middle ground between minor treatments like physical therapy and serious, full-blown surgery.

The KeyLift device plugs this hole.

Here is what the ideal patient experience looks like for KeyLift customers:

  • A patient goes to an outpatient surgery center.
  • The practitioner makes a two-inch incision and attaches the KeyLift to the lamina. The KeyLift expands and releases the nerve and disk pressure.
  • After a 20-minute procedure, the patient is out the door... usually with immediate results.
  • The fusion lasts for six years or longer. After that, the patient will either be pain-free or can receive a new KeyLift if further relief is needed. And that’s it.

The KeyLift fusion technology has the potential to greatly disrupt the back pain market. In fact, it could be paradigm shifting.

No More Sleepovers

There is a seismic shift happening in the world of surgical care. Patients want to avoid overnight hospitalization at all costs. And insurance companies don’t want to pay for overnight stays either.

Some hospitals have their own outpatient surgical centers. However, ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs, which are independently owned) have become the most common choice for those seeking outpatient surgery. In fact, more than 60% of the surgeries in the U.S. since 2020 have been performed at ASC’s.

Here’s the beauty of ASCs: They are not beholden to the bureaucracy that is the American hospital system. In hospitals, new and innovative products (like KeyLift) may take six months or more to become approved. With ASCs, new products can be approved in weeks. And since they are run by surgeons (many of whom also work at hospitals), the level of care is still extremely high.

There are more than 9,000 ASCs in the U.S. It’s a $34.8 billion market. Just 183 ASCs currently offer spine surgery. But that number is growing by 200% per year and is showing no signs of slowing down. [source]

However, let’s be honest. ASCs also exist to make a profit. So how much are they going to make from the KeyLift?

FloSpine founder and CEO Peter Harris laid out the economics for us. ASCs could make around $5,000 per procedure after costs. At five procedures per day (which is conservative) at one day per week (a typical schedule for ASC spine surgeries), an ASC could make $25,000 per week. That’s big revenue to quickly add to any growing ASC.

It will be a no-brainer for ASCs to accept a product like KeyLift.

Potential Complications

Let’s not forget this is a medical device company. The KeyLift still needs to gain FDA approval. While FloSpine expects this process to be swift and plans to launch KeyLift in the second or third quarter of 2023, you simply never know with the FDA. It can always be longer and more expensive than founders plan for.

Expert Help

Fortunately, a very solid founding team is backing up FloSpine’s hugely disruptive technology. Peter is a veteran in the medical device space. He was a senior project engineer at a medtech startup called K2M that was acquired by Stryker for more than $1 billion. Peter was also director of engineering at US Spine and vice president of engineering at Amedica Corp. He is certainly well positioned to lead FloSpine through FDA clearance.

While there are risks associated with FloSpine as an investment opportunity, I believe its KeyLift technology is extremely exciting and has the potential to completely revolutionize the spine industry.

How to Invest

If you choose to invest in this Deal to Watch, FloSpine is raising capital on StartEngine. If you don't already have an account with StartEngine, you can sign up here.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
