OR AKIVA, Israel, Oct. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ –Expanding Orthopedics Inc. (EOI), a privately held medical device company focused on developing and commercializing innovative expandable devices for spine surgery, today announced first surgeries with its enhanced 3D expandable cage, the FLXfit™15. The FLXfit™15 offers enhanced performance and versatility by providing additional device sizes with the ability to further expand the device up to 4mm to achieve controlled expansion and lordosis correction of up to 15⁰.
Dr. Marc Weinstein, at the Spine Center at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute in Tampa, FL commented, “EOI’s attention to surgeons’ feedback and ability to innovate quickly is imperative in this environment”. He said, “This new higher range expansion will enable us to better treat our patients and restore segmental lordosis up to 15 degrees. This will have a tremendous impact on our ability to improve the patient’s sagittal balance and long-term surgical outcomes.” Dr. Weinstein concluded ,”This is an ideal implant for my L5/S1 fusion patients given the reduced size on entry and the need for enhanced lordosis at this level.”
Dr. Hamad Farhat, of Chicago, Illinois said, “The new 32mm length option adds great flexibility in treating patients with smaller anatomies as well as higher vertebral levels. The smaller size will allow 15 degrees of lordosis correction with additional space to pack more bone graft material”. He explained, “Expandable cages play a key role in successful MIS fusion procedures. The ability to deliver an ALIF type footprint cage with upto 15 degrees of lordosis correction through a minimal, unilateral approach is definitively a paradigm change in the MIS fusion market.”
Ofer Bokobza, CEO of Expanding Orthopedics, commented, “We are excited with the first surgeries with the FLXfit™15. This represents our continued commitment for innovation and collaboration with our surgeons to deliver state of the art spine fusion technology designed to improve long term patients’ outcome.” He said ,”We believe that the performance and versatility of the new FLXfit™ family will catapult EOI to gain greater share in fusion surgery both in MIS and open approaches.”
