NuVasive Cancels 10/24/07 Investor Reception Due to Concerns Over Southern California Fires

Confirms Earnings Conference Call for October 24th, 2007 at 5:00 p.m. ET

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NuVasive, Inc. (Nasdaq: NUVA), a medical device company focused on developing products for minimally disruptive surgical treatments for the spine, announced today it has cancelled the planned investor event scheduled for October 24th at 7:30 p.m. ET (6:30 p.m. CT) in Austin, Texas so that its CEO can return to corporate headquarters in San Diego over concern for the Company's personnel and their families.

Separately, the Company confirmed that it will be holding its third quarter 2007 earnings conference call as scheduled on Wednesday, October 24th, 2007 at 5:00 p.m. ET.

The Company had planned to host the investor event following release of its financial results on Wednesday, October 24. The Company is also participating this week in the Annual Meeting of the North American Spine Society. NuVasive's trade show booth at NASS will be fully-staffed and workshops and operating room demonstrations will go on as planned. Some of the Company's personnel, who would typically participate in the full-scale presence at NASS, have instead remained in San Diego to attend to the safety of their families and homes as a result of the ongoing wildfires in the area.

The Company's headquarters are in no danger and have sustained no damage as a result of the fires. NuVasive's business continues to function as usual on a day-to-day basis and the Company's distribution center in Memphis, Tennessee continues to fill customer orders without disruption.

Alexis V. Lukianov, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We continue to be concerned with the safety of the families and homes of our personnel. We will be delivering our financial results for the third quarter from San Diego, rather than Austin, so that we may remain focused on the safety of our personnel and their families, and with operating our business without disruption to our customers. Our headquarters is located away from the immediate danger of the fires and our distribution center in Memphis, Tennessee continues to service our customers routinely and without interruption."

About NuVasive

NuVasive is a medical device company focused on the design, development and marketing of products for the surgical treatment of spine disorders. The Company's product portfolio is focused on applications in the over $3.6 billion U.S. spine fusion market. The Company's current principal product offering includes a minimally disruptive surgical platform called Maximum Access Surgery, or MAS, as well as a growing offering of cervical and motion preservation products.

The MAS platform offers advantages for both patients and surgeons such as reduced surgery and hospitalization time and faster recovery. MAS combines three categories of current product offerings: NeuroVision a proprietary software-driven nerve avoidance system; MaXcess(R) a unique split-blade design retraction system; and specialized implants, like SpheRx(R) and CoRoent(R), that collectively minimize soft tissue disruption during spine surgery while allowing maximum visualization and surgical reproducibility. NuVasive's product offering is also focused on cervical internal fixation products and its R&D pipeline emphasizes both MAS and motion preservation.
