Texas Back Institute Leads Way in New Facet Joint Clinical Trial
Date:11/6/2008

TBI is first and only participant in Texas for TFAS spinal implant

PLANO, Texas, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Back Institute is leading the way again in motion preserving technology by continuing to advance spinal device studies with a clinical trial of the Total Facet Arthroplasty System (TFAS)(R).

Dr. Barton Sachs of Texas Back Institute performed the TFAS procedure on Ron Kaipus in September 2006. The Richardson, Texas resident was one of the first 40 people worldwide to receive TFAS. He is now back on the golf course and enjoying his life to the fullest. At age 67, he doesn't miss a beat and is grateful for being virtually pain-free. "I'm back to my old self," said Kaipus. "It truly gave me my life back. I'm so thankful I was able to be a part of the trial."

TFAS is a spinal implant intended for the treatment of patients with chronic leg and/or back pain caused by spinal stenosis. It's part of a category of treatment devices intended to stabilize affected spinal joints while preserving the natural motion of the spine.

"It's a great device because it frees up the nerves and spinal cord, eliminates the excess bone growth and maintains natural motion," said Dr. Sachs. "Patients are recovering quickly and we've seen excellent results so far. We're excited about the future of the trial."

There are openings within the clinical trial and Dr. Sachs explained that patients affected with spinal stenosis or spondylolisthesis should investigate this unique opportunity with Texas Back Institute.

Texas Back Institute is no stranger to motion preservation spinal technology. It pioneered the artificial disc replacement procedure in 2000 and is furthering the practice by helping with the FDA trial of TFAS and other clinical trials.
