CHICAGO, IL–(Marketwired – April 29, 2016) – joimax®, the global acting German developer and marketer of technologies and treatment methods for minimally invasive endoscopic spinal surgery, celebrates its 15th anniversary during the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) annual scientific meeting in Chicago, held in combination with the company’s senior faculty meeting.
The aim of this meeting is to share experience and deepen expertise, specifically in reference to the newest joimax® products and applications, as well as to refine specific surgical techniques. Key topics will be centered on the endoscopic treatment of degenerative spine diseases.
“When I started with the TESSYS® system in 2006, I was wondering in which patient indications this system could be applied,” says Daniel Laich, DO, Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago, Ill.
“Now, we are doing all kind of special stenotic cases, even thoracic disc and tumor treatments,” ads Albert Telfeian, MD, PhD, Hasbro Hospital of The Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University, Rhode Island.
“With the iLESSYS® Delta System, I can even do an over-the-top decompression in a central stenotic patient; and with the EndoLIF® method, I am able to perform an endoscopic-assisted stabilization, if indicated,” says Ralf Wagner, MD, Ligamenta Spine Center in Frankfurt, Germany.
Joimax®, entirely focused on treatment technologies for endoscopic minimally-invasive spinal surgery over the years, launched more than 10 different indication- driven systems providing a company growth rate of over 35% per annum. To date, more than 180,000 patients have been treated in over 40 countries with the various methods, based on more than 140 patents and trademarks issued globally.
“The major company growth and market evolutional steps are in the companies’ future, based on solid ground with broader market adoption starting now,” says Wolfgang Ries, CEO and founder of joimax®.
Founded in in Karlsruhe, Germany, in 2001, joimax® is the leading developer and marketer of complete systems for endoscopic minimally invasive spinal surgery. With TESSYS®(transforaminal), iLESSYS® (interlaminar) and CESSYS® (cervical) for decompression procedures, Multiuse RT (e.g. for rhizotomy) or with EndoLIF® and Percusys® for minimally-invasive endoscopic assisted stabilizations, proven endoscopic systems are provided that, together, cover a variety of indications.
Whether herniated disc, stenosis, pain therapy or spinal stabilization treatment — surgeons operate through small incisions under local or full anesthetic via tissue and muscle-sparing corridors through natural openings into the spinal canal (e.g. intervertebral foramen, the “Kambin triangle”).
