Captiva Spine, Inc., which designs, manufactures and distributes elegant and intuitive spine device solutions, announces the first surgeries using the company’s proprietary TransFasten™ Posterior SI Fusion System; the well-timed addition of Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Daniel Abromowitz; the addition of a new posterior cervical system – HyperLOX™.

Captiva Spine’s thoughtful solutions for the entire spinal column will be on display at the AAOS (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons) Annual Meeting March 7-9, 2018 in New Orleans at booth 4213.

TransFasten Posterior SI Fusion System

The first cases using the company’s proprietary TransFasten Posterior SI Fusion System were successfully completed across the USA starting in December 2017. TransFasten’s use of a favorable posterior approach will potentially reduce operative time and neurovascular complications. With proprietary QuadraCentric joint preparation, TransFasten provides multiple implant contact points for biomechanical stability during fusion. An initial TransFasten surgeon, Dr. Pedro Ramirez, M.D. of Central Florida Neurosurgery Institute, stated “the intuitive TransFasten instrumentation allows me to place the implant accurately, utilizing a safe posterior approach while obtaining a true biologic fusion of the sacroiliac joint.” Over the past several years there has been a resurgence in the recognition of the SI Joint as a potential source of low back pain as treatment options for SI Joint dysfunction have advanced. Captiva Spine is committed to launch devices that align clinical and economic outcomes on behalf of all key stakeholders. TransFasten is on a track for completion of its alpha launch, and Captiva Spine will be training additional surgeons on this posterior SI approach nationwide as early as the end of March 2018.

Hired: VP Sales & Business Development, Daniel Abromowitz

In supporting Captiva Spine’s commitment towards continuous growth and business development, the addition of Daniel Abromowitz to Captiva Spine’s leadership team and business is significant. Dale Mitchell, Captiva Spine’s Founder and CEO, stated, “We have been looking forward to expanding our leadership team and increasing business presence throughout the USA. Daniel is a welcome addition as a strategic business leader with a proven record of profitably building high-performing sales teams in the spinal device and healthcare marketplaces.”
