HUNTLEY, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Life Spine, a leading medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, announced today the continued adoption and success of the PROLIFT Wedge Expandable Spacer System.

“The PROLIFT Wedge offers controlled lordotic expansion of up to 15˚, which was an ideal solution for this patient. Suffering from severe disc degeneration, the collapsed discs required custom height expansion as well as sagittal alignment correction.
