COLUMBIA, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LinkSPINE™, a medical device company focused on the development of less invasive techniques for spine surgery, has promoted Dennis Farrell to President and Chief Executive Officer.

Farrell has been with LinkSPINE since 2011, serving as President since 2015, and previously leading the company’s Sales, Marketing, and Product Development initiatives.

“We are very pleased to announce the promotion of Dennis Farrell to Chief Executive Officer of LinkSPINE, Inc.,” stated Helmut D Link, Chairman of the LINK family of companies. “Dennis started with the company nearly six years ago and has advanced through progressive development of our MidlineChoice™ Platform as a member of our Executive Management Team. With his experience, expertise and knowledge as well as his communication skills and surgeon relationships, he has provided an invaluable resource to the company.”

“As CEO, Dennis will be responsible for the oversight of day to day corporate operations, human resource management as well as quality assurance and all reporting,” added Link. “We are excited about his new role at the company and look very much forward to a bright future of LinkSPINE under his leadership.”

“I am excited about and grateful for the opportunity to continue working with LinkSPINE’s exceptional team,” said Farrell. “We remain committed to developing innovative solutions that are designed for placement with minimal fluoro and shorter learning curves than tubular MIS techniques, offering the potential for reduced surgical morbidity. It is particularly rewarding to be able to offer, through LinkSPINE’s MidlineChoice, a platform designed specifically to provide surgeons enhanced flexibility. With our technology, the surgeon community can intra-operatively customize the fusion construct based upon patient anatomy, pathology, and preference. Novel, cross-linked two screw constructs are available in addition to cortical and pedicle screws, ensuring the desired implant options are available on game day even if the game plan changes according to intra-operative discovery.”

‘MidlineChoice’ is LinkSPINE’s comprehensive midline fusion portfolio, which includes CorticaLINK® and FacetLINK™. A single kit houses a complete array of screws and devices, offering the surgeon the ability to intra-operatively create a less invasive fusion construct based upon each patient. The system is specifically designed for the Ambulatory Surgery Center setting, or to reduce length of hospital stay in a conventional facility.

LinkSPINE will be exhibiting the company’s novel technology in Booth 434 at the North American Spine Society Meeting in Orlando, from October 25-28, 2017.
