Zimmer Holdings, a provider of orthopedic devices, has unveiled PathFinder NXT system to provide an intuitive and flexible system for a range of minimally invasive (MIS) spinal procedures.

The PathFinder NXT System is an MIS pedicle screw system that facilitates both mini-open and percutaneous approaches.

The system enables enhanced reduction, compression, distraction and bone decortications capabilities, and gives surgeons the ability to efficiently complete multi-level constructs.

MIS surgery utilizes small incisions, minimizing blood loss and potentially expediting the surgical procedure and rehabilitation.

The PathFinder NXT System supports a range of MIS spinal approaches, enabling surgeons the flexibility to treat the needs of each patient.

Zimmer Spine president Steve Healy said the PathFinder NXT System provides unprecedented options for surgeons and their patients.

"The system’s innovative instrumentation and streamlined surgical technique facilitate easier procedures," Healy said.
