ATEC Launches Expandable Technology for Medialized Posterior Procedure

October 12, 2022

CARLSBAD, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Alphatec Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATEC), a provider of innovative solutions dedicated to revolutionizing the approach to spine surgery, announced that at the 2022 NASS Annual Meeting, the Company will introduce expandable interbody and access technology designed to enhance the medialized minimally-invasive (MIS) posterior approach. The procedure is designed to minimize muscle morbidity and blood loss, which enables shorter hospital stays and faster patient recoveries.

Pat Miles, Chairman and CEO, commented, “The goals of spine surgery are decompression, stabilization and alignment. ATEC’s MIS medialized approach has been designed to fulfill these clinical requirements while minimizing morbidity.”

The ATEC MIS medialized approach integrates elegant access and expandable implant technology with ATEC’s InVictus Fixation System. The Sigma Medialized Access System has been uniquely architected to achieve customized exposure. Designed to enable precise control of lordosis and disc height restoration, the PSX Expandable Interbody Implant System can improve sagittal correction and simplify insertion.

Antoine Tohmeh, M.D., Orthopedic Surgeon at MultiCare Rockwood Northpoint Specialty Center in Spokane, Washington, shared, “I’ve had great patient outcomes utilizing the PSX Expandable Implant System in surgeries that include L5/S1. When I fully release the spine and expand the PSX implant, I can better achieve my alignment goals.”

David Jones, M.D., Neurosurgeon at Carolina NeuroSurgery and Spine in Greensborough, North Carolina, commented, “I prefer a less-disruptive medialized approach when addressing the spine posteriorly. ATEC has significantly improved the approach by integrating specifically designed technology to enable simple and elegant interbody placement.”
