April 3, 2020- Noblesville, IN- Nexxt Spine, LLC a leading manufacturer of spinal solutions is proud to accomplish the first effective implantation of the Nexxt Matrixx® Corpectomy System following FDA clearance. Showcasing technology unique to the Nexxt Matrixx® line of products, the corpectomy cage is an intentionally engineered 3D printed porous titanium implant.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Derek Taggard at Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno, CA on a trauma patient this past weekend.
Dr. Taggard commented, “After much anticipation, I am very excited that the Nexxt Matrixx® corpectomy implant is now available to the market. I am honored to have done the first live corpectomy implant. I believe this technology is the quickest path to successful arthrodesis for my patients. The spacious central cavity allows for a large amount of biologic and generous endplate contact; the porosity allows for lateral rapid in-growth as well.”
Recognized for his work as the Director of Spinal and Neurotrauma at Community Regional Medical Center and Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at UCSF Fresno, Nexxt Spine is privileged to receive Dr. Taggard’s praise.
