BOCA RATON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–US Spine® announced today that it has launched the Facet Gun MAX, the latest evolution of its patented Facet Fixation platform. The Facet Gun MAX offers improved performance and consistency while maintaining core features such as strength, speed and ease of use. The Facet Gun MAX consists of a reusable hand piece with quick-release, disposable implant cartridges.
The new Facet Gun MAX enables spine surgeons to lock the facet joint in two simple steps via an easy to use gun-shaped “all-in-one” delivery system, while US Spine’s Facet Bolt, the first and only available locking facet implant, provides the stiffness and strength equivalent to conventional stabilization and fusion devices, but is simpler, faster and less invasive to use. The system is designed to lock a spinal motion segment at risk of instability following laminectomy. Hundreds of thousands of laminectomies are performed in the U.S. annually.
Thanks to the Facet Gun’s simple, intuitive design, a surgeon can lock a spinal motion segment in just minutes rather than the hours required from traditional stabilization methods.
