December 4, 2023 – Schiedam, the Netherlands – OrthoSpineNews –

Cresco Spine, a pioneer in dynamic spinal care solutions, proudly announces the publication of its latest patent in the USA, US 20230363804 A1, introducing an axial sliding bearing for spinal correction systems. This groundbreaking invention is set to revolutionize the treatment of pediatric spinal deformities.

Revolutionizing Spinal Correction Technology
The patented connector, designed for seamless integration in the Spring Distraction SystemTM (SDSTM), offers unprecedented control in spinal correction procedures. Besides control in movement, another potential benefit is significantly lowering wear, which is inherently related to a spinal growth system. This technology promises a significant advancement in treating conditions like scoliosis, particularly in young patients.

A Vision for Better Care
“Our focus has always been on improving spinal care, especially for children and adolescents facing severe spinal deformities,” says Dennis Magermans, CEO Cresco Spine. “This patent is a testament to our commitment to setting new standards in surgical treatment with dynamic implants”​​.

Inventors’ Perspective
René Castelein, Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of Cresco Spine, brings years of expertise in treating and researching scoliosis. “This invention is not just a product; it’s a part of our vision to make dynamic spring distraction the best option for growing children with scoliosis, with the ultimate goal to cure rather than salvage scoliosis” he states.

Moyo Kruyt, Advisor and Clinical Principal Investigator and co-founder of Cresco Spine, emphasizes the potential of this technology. “As an orthopedic surgeon specializing in scoliosis care, I am pleased to see how this connector can change the game in scoliosis treatment. It’s about bringing real solutions to real problems,” he remarks​​.
