KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Camber Spine, a leading innovator in spine and medical technologies, has announced the national rollout of a complete set of devices and tools required to perform the Oblique Lateral Interbody Fusion Surgery (OLIF) technique. Camber’s OLIF technology platform, a continuation of the company’s ongoing portfolio of product development of surgical solutions for anterior column reconstruction, enables surgeons to take advantage of the natural corridor and access the anterior spine (L2-S1) through an oblique surgical approach, anterior to the psoas muscle, which is performed while the patient is in a lateral position.
The SPIRA®-O Open Matrix OLIF System incorporates the company’s proprietary open architecture and surface technology, and is the only comprehensive system on the market designed specifically for the OLIF spinal surgery approach. Its inserter location, for example, is placed at the optimal angle for atraumatic insertion. And no toggling of instruments in situ is required because Camber’s instruments are designed for safe implant delivery under direct visualization. Another highlight of the technology platform is its design for optimal cage placement, helping surgeons avoid contralateral nerve impingement.
The OLIF technique is a methodology designed by surgeons seeking a less complicated, simpler approach to treating complex spinal pathologies. The procedure gives surgeons the ability to access multiple levels through one incision without having to reposition the patient and offers excellent disc space visualization.
Camber also announced a multi-city, hands-on cadaveric OLIF training series that kicked off last month. Additional sessions are confirmed for May 1st in Las Vegas; September 18th in Austin; and November 6th in Miami. For questions, more information or to register for training, surgeons can contact Brooks McAdam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The national rollout of our complete device system to support the OLIF technique is a significant milestone for Camber Spine,” said Daniel A. Pontecorvo, Camber’s CEO. “Our interactions with surgeons at the training sessions to date have been highly positive. Our patented and award-winning OLIF technology platform, which empowers surgeons to have smooth implant delivery through the most natural corridor to the disc space, has the potential to change the way spine care is delivered. We are incredibly excited to help make this technique available to surgeons around the country and beyond.”
Innovative spine and medical technology company Camber Spine Technologies is dedicated to creating surgeon-designed solutions in MIS and minimally disruptive access for the treatment of complex spinal pathology. Incorporating state-of-the-art manufacturing, 3-D printing, and an acute sensitivity to patient anatomy, Camber Spine is making quantum leaps in the spinal fusion market.
