OR AKIVA, Israel, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —
Expanding Orthopedics Inc. (EOI), a medical device company focused on developing and commercializing innovative expandable devices for spine surgery, is proud to announce that Dr. Claudio Feler of the Cheyenne Regional Medical Group has adopted the FLXfit™ 3D Expandable TLIF Cage as his implant of choice for his MIS TLIF procedures. Dr. Feler noted that “Large bodies of clinical evidence show that lordotic restoration is crucial in addressing sagittal alignment. FLXfit’s™ unique articulating design allows for a very large implant footprint to pass through an MIS cannula and be positioned in the anterior portion of the disc space”.
Dr. Claudio Feler, Cheyenne Regional Medical Group and Associate Professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Tennessee Medical Center said, “The MIS FLXfit™ Inserter has been specifically designed to go through a narrow access tube and maintain clear line of sight while utilizing a microscope.” He added that “sagittal alignment improves outcomes and negates possible adjacent level disease. Functionally, patients tend to have less back pain postoperatively and less potential slip and falls as their horizontal gaze is corrected.” Dr. Feler concluded “FLXfit™ offers a superior approach for my surgical practice as the dial in lordosis is positioned optimally to help achieve sagittal alignment”.
Ofer Bokobza, CEO of EOI, says that “we are excited with our continued collaboration with Dr. Feler. As an early adopter in minimal invasive spine surgery and pioneer in interventional pain management, he recognizes the value of FLXfit™ for MIS surgery. His valued input has successfully helped us realize the new FLXfit™ MIS System”. Ofer emphasizes that “EOI recognizes the need for continuous innovation and the introduction of novel solutions through collaboration with leading surgeons. We believe that the FLXfit™ MIS system is raising the bar again and will help many surgeons transition to MIS spine surgery”.
