Globus Medical Announces 2,000th Patient Treated with TRANSITION® Stabilization System

AUDUBON, Pa., Dec. 29, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Globus Medical, Inc., the largest privately held spinal implant manufacturer in the world, today announced that 2,000 patients have been treated with its TRANSITION® Stabilization System. TRANSITION, a semi-rigid system for lumbar fusion, incorporates Globus' patented SoftStop™ Technology and provides advanced lumbar stabilization. The TRANSITION System includes Hydroxyapatite-coated, multi-axial pedicle screws, PET cords, and PCU spacers.

TRANSITION's SoftStop Technology enables the implant to mimic the spine's natural biomechanics. When used in conjunction with interbody fusion, TRANSITION provides more physiologic and uniform load sharing than traditional titanium or PEEK rods. The TRANSITION system can also be configured with an integrated metallic rod to provide a progression of segmental stiffness depending on the amount of degeneration of each spinal segment.

TRANSITION implants are assembled and pre-tensioned prior to implantation, thereby eliminating the complexity and variability that come with assembly and tensioning within the patient. "Everyone in the O.R. was amazed with the ease and time savings TRANSITION delivered in my first case," said Dr. Michael Randle of Nacogdoches, Texas. "Having an implant that I can simply drop into place will allow me to reduce O.R. time and surgical trauma to provide a better procedure for my patients."

"TRANSITION embodies the goals of Globus' clinically inspired innovation with its advanced biomechanics and time saving implant design. TRANSITION was a total team effort which took years of development including an unprecedented level of testing," said Michael Boyer, Director of Product Development, Emerging Technologies at Globus. "We are extremely pleased by the products acceptance by surgeons and the clinical results that they are having with their patients."
