The field of minimally invasive spine surgery relies on cutting edge technology and instrumentation. The ability to perform these delicate procedures are developed by our Society Partners who constantly improve the tools used in minimally invasive surgery. Their contributions and support to the field and to the Society have been critical to the advancement of MIS surgery for treatment of patients with spinal disorders.
Originally started in Cleveland as Acromed, Depuy Spine is now a part of Johnson and Johnson. The first FDA-approved disk replacement device was developed by Depuy. They remain on the cutting edge of technology with their Pipeline and Viper2 minimally invasive systems. They are currently developing systems for complex spinal disorders such as scoliosis and deformity.
Based in Memphis, Tennessee, Medtronic Spine is a leader in the field of minimally invasive spine surgery instrumentation. They have developed many of the key procedures used in minimally invasive spine surgery including the use of tubes and dilators instead of retractors that would otherwise crush muscle tissue. Their MAST platform includes one of the most comprehensive and advanced tools for minimally invasive surgery. Currently, Medtronic possesses the most advanced computer navigation system used specifically for minimally invasive spine surgery.
Since our founding in 1980, Orthofix has enjoyed a proud history of successes by providing surgeons and our patients with innovative solutions for trauma and spine fusion. Our Orthopedics, Spine and Sports Medicine divisions offer innovative treatment options for adult and pediatric deformity correction, internal and external fracture fixation, biologics and bone growth stimulation, interbody fusion, MIS and bracing.
Our successes fueled a relentless pursuit to ensure our efforts were meeting the needs of our customers. And that focus led us to grow beyond the realm of our core external fixation and bone growth stimulation products - to discover fresh innovations and solutions.
