NuVasive Showcases Latest Innovation in Virtual Global Event

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — NuVasive, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUVA), the leader in spine technology innovation, focused on transforming spine surgery with minimally disruptive, procedurally integrated solutions, held a virtual event yesterday showcasing the Company’s latest innovation across its market-leading 360 portfolios.

“Changing the lives of patients around the globe is the foundation of NuVasive—and we fulfill our purpose through a continued commitment to being the industry’s innovation leader,” said Chris Barry, chief executive officer at NuVasive. “For more than 20 years, we’ve remained focused on transforming the future of spine surgery, and it’s critical that all stakeholders see how our 360 portfolios integrate with the Pulse platform—and our growing clinical data—help advance the standard of care.”

NuVasive delivered a one-hour, virtual global event sharing how the Company’s portfolios are transforming surgery, advancing care, and changing patient lives. Attendees heard from members of the product leadership team and surgeon key opinion leaders across each spine segment—cervical, anterior, posterior, and complex—and how the Company’s procedural solutions are enabled by the Pulse platform.

Highlights of the NuVasive Innovation Event by portfolio:

  • C360: Dr. Paul Holman, Houston Methodist Hospital, and Dr. Michael Wang, University of Miami Health System, discussed the future of cervical spine surgery with enabling technologies. Dr. Holman showcased how he utilizes the MR imaging1 properties of the Simplify Cervical Disc with the imaging enhancement application within Pulse to easily confirm disc placement intraoperatively.
  • X360: Dr. Alex Thomas, Atlantic Brain and Spine, and Dr. Aaron Buckland, Melbourne Orthopaedic Group, discussed clinical data around X360 single-position surgery (SPS) and the adoption of XALIF. Dr. Thomas walked through an X360 case with Pulse, demonstrating how he’s adopted the new technique, approaches patient selection, builds a surgical plan, and executes to deliver an optimal patient outcome. He also spoke on the clinical data that extends over 450 peer-reviewed articles validating XLIF, and numerous studies in support of X360 SPS.
  • P360: Dr. David Yam, Legacy Health in Portland, Oregon, gave peers a first look at utilizing the NuVasive Tube System and Excavation Micro, sharing the benefits of working with a sole provider for a comprehensive access solution in the prone position. These new additions to the P360 portfolio provide minimally invasive surgery options for TLIF and decompression.
  • Complex: Dr. Tyler Koski, Northwestern Medicine, shared a complex posterior cervical fusion case using the new cervical addition to the Reline system. He showcased how a fully junctional offering from occiput to sacrum with Reline Cervical gives him the ability to address the largest deformity cases within one robust product line.
