This first implantation of the Mont-Blanc MIS was performed on a patient presenting with degeneration on several vertebral levels. Its surgical treatment required the use of eight pedicle screws and two titanium-alloy rods from Spineway’s Mont Blanc MIS line. These instruments are adapted to meet practitioners’ needs for technological tools, like constructs involving over three vertebral levels, as in the present case. This line provides surgeons with highly technical instruments, all based on Spineway’s expertise in correcting spinal curvatures. The new Mont Blanc MIS instruments already allow for the treatment of several types of lumbar-spine disorders.
Minimally invasive surgery is currently the most dynamic segment of the worldwide market for spinal implants. Less traumatic for the patient, this type of surgery is less painful, and allows for a faster recovery and shorter hospital stays. This operating technique should, in the medium-term, become the standard technique for most surgeries.
This first successful operation allows Spineway to position itself in the U.S. market on a high-growth segment with a product line offering surgeons various possibilities. Based on the success of its international launch, Spineway is continuing the commercial marketing and deployment of its products and plans to accelerate its R&D in order to widen the scope of application of its technologies, to cover a larger range of disorders.
