Spineology will showcase its recently FDA-cleared Duo Lumbar interbody fusion system at the North American Spine Society (NASS) annual meeting in Orlando, Florida.

The Duo System features the first lateral implant to combine PEEK, titanium, and the company’s proprietary mesh technology. The unique design dramatically reduces the access required to implant a device compared to traditional lateral systems.

By minimizing the nerve and soft tissue retraction typically required in these surgeries, the company believes the Duo System can reduce the post-operative thigh pain and other complications commonly associated with the lateral approach.

In addition to reducing the exposure required for implant placement, the Duo implant, once filled, creates a large, load-sharing, endplate-conforming graft pack that expands up to 30mm in width to help maintain spinal correction and support fusion.

“We feel the Duo System represents the most substantive change in lateral cage design to be introduced into the market since the advent of the lateral procedure itself,” said John Booth, CEO, Spineology Inc.

“We’re very excited to introduce this next generation technology to the market at NASS,” added Booth.

Spineology provides innovative, anatomy-conserving spinal technologies for surgeons and their patients. Spineology surgical techniques conserve spinal bone, ligament and muscle tissue.
