BORDEAUX, France & BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Regulatory News:

IMPLANET (Paris:IMPL) (Euronext: IMPL, FR0010458729, PEA-PME eligible),
a medical technology company specializing in vertebral and knee-surgery
implants, announces that the first idiopathic scoliosis surgical
procedure using the JAZZ platform in Brazil has been successfully
carried out by Dr. Raphael Pratali and his team at the Hospital do
Servidor Público Estadual in São Paulo. Further surgical procedures are
already scheduled in Brazil.

JAZZ technology is an excellent alternative to screws in maximizing
the correction of major spine deformities. Using JAZZ implants in a
hybrid construct in idiopathic scoliosis surgery makes it possible to
restore the patient’s sagittal balance. By significantly reducing
operating time, we provide the patient with additional safety. I will
obviously be using JAZZ technology during my surgical procedures from
now on,
” says Dr Pratali.

Alvaro Tadeus, CEO of Importek, Implanet’s commercial partner in Brazil,
adds: “We are delighted by the unanimous consensus regarding this
first surgical procedure, which was carried out by an eminent spine
surgeon in Brazil. We will now be able to accelerate the marketing of
JAZZ technology in this country, backed by our in-depth knowledge of the
spine market, our network of influential opinion leaders and our
specific sales structure

Ludovic Lastennet, CEO of Implanet, concludes: “We are impressed by
how quickly the first JAZZ surgery was performed following the
regulatory approval received two months ago from the Brazilian health
authorities. I am pleased to hear that Dr. Pratali and his team are
delighted with the advantages our technology has provided. This will no
doubt enable its adoption to spread among peers in this market, which
saw close to 27,000 vertebral fusion surgeries in 2015.

Next financial press release: 2015 annual results, on 30 March
2016 (after market).
