Date:9/12/2007

-place accident, and is now living pain free.

"At one point in time, I couldn't lift my right arm without pain and numbness in my arm, neck, shoulder and back," said Darrell Betha. "Now, I don't feel the pain."

Betha, a welder of twelve years prior to suffering an injury on the job in 2004 and has been out of work since, is looking forward to a speedy recovery and a return to work.

"Motion preservation procedures provide patients with an opportunity to evaluate various treatment options to address their neck and spine problems," said Dr. Pierce D. Nunley, of the Spine Institute of Louisiana. "We are thrilled to be able to offer these cutting edge procedures to patients at our facility. It allows us to find the treatment option that best fits each individual patient, and we are able to successfully treat the majority of our patients with conservative treatment modalities and identify those patients who truly need surgery."

"While fusions continue to be the standard, motion preservation is at the forefront of advances in spine care," said Marcy Rogers, president and CEO of SpineMark Corporation. "We value the opportunity to participate in trials that could lead to additional treatment options for patients in search of a therapy that is right for them."

SpineMark Corporation, headquartered in San Diego, manages a network of clinical trial sites across the country specializing in spine and back treatment, and played an integral role in bringing this clinical study to the Spine Institute of Louisiana.
