Emerging spinal company continues to focus on unmet needs of the lumbar
MINNEAPOLIS, May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- CoreSpine Technologies, LLC, an emerging spinal device company announced today the expansion of its platform technology for spinal implant procedures to include an application for minimally invasive fusion.
The development of CoreSpine's Technologies' initial prototype concentrated on generating a complete and selective nucleus removal device. The technology was recently expanded to incorporate a cartilage removal device for endplate preparation. The importance of the company's proprietary technology is elevated as spinal implants and therapies begin to require more effective nucleus removal and endplate preparation through limited access.
There is a strong momentum within the spine industry to move in the direction of products that support tissue sparing, motion preserving and minimally invasive techniques. The goal of CoreSpine's proprietary technology is to universally meet the specific preparation requirements of both current and emerging implant technologies.
Initial data to support the technology's enhanced ability over existing options will be presented at the Spine Arthroplasty Society's 8th annual meeting in Miami. The presentation by John Sherman, M.D., Medical Director for CoreSpine will occur on Friday, May 9th at 3:09 p.m. The presentation consists of initial data collected using CoreSpine's prototype for nucleus removal. Additional information will be available in CoreSpine's booth, #327, during the SAS meeting.
