disc replacement vs spinal fusion The AxiaLIF (Axial Lumbar Interbody Fusion) System TranS1 has pioneered a revolutionary approach to achieve this spacing in the lumbar spine. The AxiaLIF (Axial Lumbar Interbody Fusion) System includes surgical instruments for creating a safe and reproducible pre-sacral access route to the L5-S1 vertebral bodies. The AxiaLIF technique features novel instrumentation to enable standard of care fusion principles, distraction and stabilization of the anterior lumbar column while mitigating the soft tissue trauma associated with traditional lumbar fusion through open surgical incisions. Using AxiaLIF, the lumbar spine is accessed through a minimally invasive opening adjacent to the sacral bone. This atraumatic tissue plane alleviates the need for the surgeon to cut through soft tissues like muscles and ligaments, thus lessening patient pain and the likelihood of complications. The CD HORIZON SEXTANT Spinal System The CD HORIZON SEXTANT Spinal System allows surgeons to deliver and apply screw and rod implants to the posterior aspect of the spine without the major muscle and tissue disruption encountered with traditional spinal fusion surgeries. This minimally invasive technique potentially allows significant patient benefits. Shorter hospital stays, smaller scars, faster recovery, and less post-operative pain are the primary benefits of this system.

The Spinal Kinetics M6 Disc Replacement

The Spinal Kinetics M6 Disc Replacement offers a "Quality of Motion" that is not present in any other implant we have seen! Unlike early Disc Replacement designs, the Spinal Kinetics M6 artificial disc is designed to replicate the structure and performance of a natural disc. Its innovative design incorporates an artificial nucleus to allow shock absorption and a woven fiber annulus for graded variable motion resistance in all directions. Dr. Ritter-Lang has been using the M6 implant for several years and has seen excellent results and reduced complications. These complication risks include adjacent disc degeneration and facet joint damage found in early "ball in socket" designs, and M6 has not been found to cause the ossification, found in other early generation compressible implants.
