When a patient has a spinal condition that requires fusion or a procedure that must be performed from the back of the spine, also known as a posterior approach, the Vertex System contains implants and an instrument set for performing this surgical procedure.

When paired with the Vertex Select Occipitocervical Module this system comprises a comprehensive posterior cervical-upper thoracic spinal system that offers adjustability through multiple plate designs, rods, screws, and hooks that gives surgeons more options during surgery, enabling them to tailor the procedure to each patient’s needs.
