Globus Medical's SIGNATURE(TM) Spacer Designed for MILDER(TM) TLIF Procedures
Date:2/3/2009

AUDUBON, Pa., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Globus Medical, Inc., the largest privately held spinal implant manufacturer in the world, today announced the introduction of the PATRIOT SIGNATURE(TM) TLIF Spacer system designed for TLIF procedures. The SIGNATURE(TM) TLIF Spacer is the latest addition to Globus Medical's portfolio of MILDER(TM) Spine Care products.

The SIGNATURE(TM) TLIF Spacer system includes an articulating implant that enables surgeons to utilize a single instrument--from insertion through final placement--to deliver the spacer into the biomechanically ideal position through a portal or small incision. The ease of placement allows the surgeon to restore the natural lordotic alignment of the spine while employing an MIS approach. The system is designed to permit preservation of a significant portion of the musculature that lies between the skin and the surgical site on the spine while using a portal or mini-open technique.

"The ability to consistently restore lordosis with a minimally invasive approach allows me to accomplish my surgical goals while reducing approaches related to morbidity and costs," states Dr. Juris Shibayama, M.D. an orthopedic surgeon from Nashville, Tennessee. "SIGNATURE(TM) allows unparalleled control when placing the implant. The radio-opaque targeting elements allow the confirmation of proper positioning every time."

MILDER(TM)--the Natural Evolution of Spine Care

The SIGNATURE(TM) TLIF Spacer is the latest addition to the Globus portfolio of MILDER(TM) Spine Care products. The MILDER(TM) (Minimally Invasive, Less Disruptive, Earlier Recovery) portfolio 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.

"Creating innovative products utilizing clinically inspired engineering in order to promote healing in patients with spinal disorders has always been the mission of Globus Medical," said David Paul, Chairman and CEO, Globus Medical, Inc. "The MILDER(TM) portfolio, with its holistic integration of surgical techniques, implants, instrumentation, and education is the natural evolution of that mission."
