INCERT®-S Absorbable Anti-Adhesion Gel

Prevent or Reduce Adhesions

INCERT-S is a clear, absorbable, viscous barrier gel proven to prevent or reduce the formation of adhesions following spinal surgery1, 2, 3. It consists of highly purified, partially cross-linked high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HA).

INCERT-S functions by creating a physical barrier that keeps tissues apart to prevent the formation of adhesions. This anti-adhesion layer is then naturally absorbed by the body over time.

The INCERT-S Advantage

  • Prevents or reduces adhesion formation
  • Quick, easy and precise application
  • Safe, natural and absorbable


INCERT-S is CE-marked for use in the prevention of post-surgical adhesions.
