Developed and patented by Rush E. Simonson, a well-known and respected spinal industry executive, the medical device portfolio presents a surgical method for replacing damaged fibrocartilage between vertebrae in a patient's spine.  A commercial prototype related to this portfolio can be reviewed by interested parties under a non-disclosure agreement.

Key attributes of the patented technology include:

  • Maintain and re-tension of the ALL, the PLL, and the annulus
  • Maintain the supraspinous ligament and interspinous ligaments
  • Unload the facets
