NYSE-listed medtech company Stryker Corp. is acquiring Israel-based orthopedic device company OrthoSpace Ltd. for $110 million upfront in cash and up to $110 in milestones, the companies announced Tuesday.

 

Founded in 2009 and based in Israeli affluent coastal town Caesaria, OrthoSpace develops a biodegradable balloon that can be implanted in a minimally invasive procedure between two bones, preventing friction and alleviating pain.
