Products such as ProLift, TiBOW™, and LONGBOW ® are the core competencies which we will continue to drive for our procedurally based product portfolios”.

Life Spine’s continued focus on Micro-Invasive Technologies includes additional clinical and procedural solutions with the AVATAR ® Percutaneous Screw System, AILERON ® Interspinous System, SIMPACT ™ and TRI-FIN SI Joint Fixation, and the CENTRIC ® family of retractors.

Zeshan Hyder, D.O., of Bone and Joint Specialists of Northwest Indiana notes, “The continued evolution of MIS surgery to reduce tissue morbidity, and restore anatomical alignment, especially in severe degenerative and collapsed disc, is being achieved in my practice with the expandable technologies such as ProLift, and the lateral system LONGBOW. Both of these systems reduce the requirements for multiple instrument passes by important neural structures while maintaining my surgical goals and positive patient outcomes. Additionally, ProLift provides me the benefits of reduced graft subsidence, seen in other titanium implants. This has been a game changer for my practice."
