In the past, spine surgeons had difficulty placing screws into the proper positions in the vertebrae and still attaching the plate or rod. The VERTEX? Reconstruction System allows screws to be placed exactly where they need to go safely.
Meet Aesop and Hermes and learn how the use of robotics and computers in minimally invasive spine surgery has resulted in more accurate surgical procedures, shortened operative time, and fewer complications.
One of the newest and most popular spinal instrumentation systems used by surgeons is TSRH-3D?. The TSRH-3D? pedicle screw has a remarkable "headless" design and has proven to be one of the smallest yet strongest spinal implants available today.
The goals of low back (lumbar) spine surgery often include reducing nerve pressure (decompression) and spinal stabilization. Implants are devices (such as cages, rods, screws) that, when combined with bone graft, stabilize the low back.
Many implants used in spinal instrumentation are made from medical grade stainless steel, Titanium, or Titanium-alloy. Implants made from Titanium are highly resistant to corrosion and fatigue and are MRI compatible.
