HUNTLEY, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, launches four minimally invasive systems at the 2015 North American Spine Society 30th Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL.
The LONGBOW™ Expandable Lateral Spacer System and CENTRIC® Lateral Retractor System simplify expandable lumbar interbody fusions (eLIFs) and allow for a larger graft area with less muscle retraction. The SImpact™ Sacroiliac Joint Fixation System offers in-situ controlled compression via a unique two part screw that also incorporates Life Spine’s new proprietary Osseo-Loc™ surface treatment to help promote bone fusion. The CENTERLINE™ Cortical Thoracolumbar Spinal System offers one of the smallest stature cobalt chrome systems on the market for minimal incisions and tissue retraction.
“Throughout the last year, Life Spine has doubled in size through a focus on minimally invasive surgery. Although we are a multinational company, we remain true to our start-up, engineering core by working with innovative surgeons to produce unique, highly effective surgical procedures. The LONGBOW eLIF procedure is a prime example of our process of innovating for better surgical outcomes. LONGBOW is the first MIS Anterior-Posterior expandable lateral system on the market reducing the muscle retraction by as much as 55%,” said Michael Butler, President and CEO of Life Spine.
All products will be featured at the annual meeting as well as the Life Spine Technical Product Fair on Wednesday, October 14, 2015, at the corporate office in Huntley, IL.
