Spineway, specialist in surgical implants and instruments for treating disorders of the spinal column (spine), announces that the Texas Back Institute (TBI), a group of US hospitals specializing in neck and back pain, performed the first operation addressing scoliosis via minimally invasive surgery using the Group’s MONT-BLANC MIS implants.
This complex operation was successfully performed by Dr. Theodore Belanger at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital and positions Spineway as an innovative player in the treatment of scoliosis. Indeed, very few laboratories in the world offer solutions adapted to deforming conditions such as scoliosis with a minimally invasive approach.
Prior to this implant, Texas Back Institute performed a series of fifteen surgeries with Spineway’s MONT-BLANC MIS implants de Spineway on patients with degenerative conditions.
With 40 years’ experience, TBI is currently one of the biggest top-level multidisciplinary university centers in the US. With 9 medical centers and over 20 surgeons throughout the state of Texas, TBI is well-known and has cutting-edge expertise in the treatment of back conditions.
Theodore Belanger, Orthopedic Spine and Scoliosis Surgeon at TBI, said the following about this partnership: “I feel there is great promise in the innovative thinking at the core of Spineway, and I look forward to a strong working relationship between the company and the Texas Back Institute over the coming years!”
Building on this major step forward, Spineway will continue its expansion in the United States and confirms a sharp increase in its revenue for the 2017 financial year.
