Nexgen Spine Receives CE Mark Approval for the Physio-L(R) Artificial Disc
Date:8/5/2008

WHIPPANY, N.J., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Nexgen Spine, a leading developer of innovative spinal implants for the surgical treatment of degenerative disc disease, announced today that it has received CE mark approval to market the Physio-L(R) Lumbar Artificial Disc in the European Union.

"We are delighted that the Physio-L(R) Artificial Disc Prosthesis has received CE mark approval," said Alastair Clemow, Ph.D., President and CEO of Nexgen Spine. "This represents an important milestone in our plan to launch a full range of artificial disc prostheses based on our proprietary elastomeric disc technology." Dr. Clemow further added, "the fact that the Physio-L(R) is the first of the next generation elastomeric lumbar discs to receive a CE mark makes this approval even more exciting."

The Physio-L(R) Artificial Disc is an elastomeric disc prosthesis designed to be used in the lumbar spine for patients suffering from degenerative disc disease. The device's proprietary elastomeric technology enables the disc to closely mimic the mechanical properties of the natural disc and represents a significant advance over current designs of disc prostheses.

"The unique properties of the Physio-L(R) help restore the natural shock absorption of the disc," said Casey Lee MD, Chairman and Founder of Nexgen Spine. "This allows the surgeon to restore function to the patient's disc. The clinical data for the Physio-L(R) are demonstrating outstanding improvements in both patient disability and pain, supporting the concept of using elastomeric polymers for total disc prostheses."

Nexgen Spine, Inc. is dedicated to providing its customers with high quality products that promote pain relief, preservation of motion and restoration of function by applying state-of-the-art design, biomaterials, and manufacturing technology. The company, based in Whippany NJ, is ISO 13485:2003 certified.
