AUDUBON, Pa., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ — Globus Medical, Inc., the largest privately held spinal implant manufacturer in the world, today announced the introduction of the PATRIOT SIGNATURE(TM) TLIF Spacer system designed for TLIF procedures. The SIGNATURE(TM) TLIF Spacer is the latest addition to Globus Medical’s portfolio of MILDER(TM) Spine Care products.
The SIGNATURE(TM) TLIF Spacer system includes an articulating implant that enables surgeons to utilize a single instrument–from insertion through final placement–to deliver the spacer into the biomechanically ideal position through a portal or small incision. The ease of placement allows the surgeon to restore the natural lordotic alignment of the spine while employing an MIS approach. The system is designed to permit preservation of a significant portion of the musculature that lies between the skin and the surgical site on the spine while using a portal or mini-open technique.
