HUNTLEY, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 22, 2018--Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, announced today that the state of the art PROLIFT ® Expandable Spacer System has grown 70% in revenues from the first half of 2018 over the same period the prior year.

“There are many reasons as to why we are experiencing such high growth with this line,” said Mariusz Knap, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for Life Spine, “the PROLIFT system has numerous key features that make it exceptional. The implant self-locks at any height to accommodate for unique patient anatomies, can be expanded and collapsed as needed to ensure correct placement and is available in multiple heights and lordotic options. Additionally, the instrumentation allows for a procedure that is efficient, safe and reproducible.”

When PROLIFT is combined with the AVATAR ® Minimally Invasive Spinal System and the CENTRIC ® -T Pedicle-Based Retractor System, it allows for a truly micro-invasive TLIF. The hallmarks of this micro-invasive TLIF are reduced incision size(s), less muscle retraction and fewer instrument passes.

PROLIFT also features the proprietary OSSEO-LOC surface technology which creates a unique osteophylic surface architecture for potential bone on and in-growth and is featured on all Life Spine titanium interbodies. 1
