Globus Medical's INDEPENDENCE(TM) Spacer System: The MILDER(TM) ALIF Solution
Date:2/26/2009

AUDUBON, Pa., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Globus Medical, Inc., the largest privately held spinal implant manufacturer in the world, today announced the full launch of its INDEPENDENCE(TM) Spacer System which is designed to provide a MILDER(TM) Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF).

INDEPENDENCE(TM) integrates a stabilization plate and a PEEK interbody spacer into a preassembled, easy-to-use system that enables a less disruptive surgery than a traditional ALIF procedure. The entire procedure is streamlined by low profile instrumentation which facilitates a less invasive approach through a smaller incision.

The elimination of a traditional plate preserves the natural anatomic profile of a patient's lumbar spine. INDEPENDENCE(TM) also incorporates a smooth screw blocking mechanism minimizing the disruption to the anatomy surrounding the surgical site and may lessen the long term impact from surgery.

Dr. Ali Mortazavi, an Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon with Resurgens Orthopaedics in Atlanta, Ga. said, "INDEPENDENCE(TM) allows me to provide a less invasive procedure to my patients and reduces long term issues with the great (blood) vessels while still allowing the advantages of a traditional ALIF procedure. I have found the instrumentation expedites the entire procedure and allows me to deliver a better overall solution for patients."

MILDER(TM) - the Natural Evolution of Spine Care

The INDEPENDENCE(TM) Spacer is the latest addition to Globus Medical's MILDER(TM) Spine Care portfolio. The MILDER(TM) (Minimally Invasive, Less Disruptive, Earlier Recovery) Spine Care encompasses a holistic approach to spine care that integrates minimally invasive surgical techniques with implants, instrumentation, and education designed to lessen the disruption to a patient's anatomic structures and natural range of motion in order to facilitate an earlier, pain-free recovery.

"Our design goal was to provide a MILDER(TM) ALIF solution and deliver a simple, repeatable procedure with an implant that is anatomically matched to a broad range of patients," said Mark Adams, Group Engineering Manager of Interbody Fusion. He continues, "The entire INDEPENDENCE(TM) system including the unique low profile instruments streamlines an ALIF procedure while disrupting as little anatomy as possible."
