The Mariner Posterior Fixation System is a pedicle based system featuring modular screw technology and accompanying instrumentation. Designed to reduce the number of trays needed for surgery, Mariner is intended to efficiently provide surgeons with multiple intra-operative options to facilitate posterior lumbar fixation. Mariner offers versatility and adaptability by providing surgeons with a variety of instrument and implant solutions for degenerative and complex spine pathologies, including choices in rod diameter, rod material, construct configuration, and deformity correction techniques. Key market differentiators include in-situ modularity, motion limiting heads, and rod versatility with both 5.5 mm and 6 mm offerings.
“In today’s hospital environment, the key is to have as many options as you can for your patient without overburdening your staff,” said Douglas Orndorff, M.D. “Mariner is versatile, yet simple to use. Ultimately, it helps me make intraoperative decisions seamlessly.”
Dr. Warren Yu, Director of Spine Surgery at George Washington Hospital added, “Mariner’s instrumentation and modular screw design provide me with the broad selection of implant configurations that I need to address the challenging patient anatomy I see in my adult spine practice—from basic degenerative to complex deformity cases.”
“The Mariner Poster Fixation System brings innovative features to the market and utilizes a modular design that increases surgeon flexibility while reducing the number of trays that need to be brought into the operating room,” concluded Keith Valentine, CEO of SeaSpine. “The Mariner launch is an important enhancement to SeaSpine’s spinal hardware product offerings in the $1.8 billion posterior lumbar fixation market.”
