Wednesday, July 28, 2021

Life Spine, a leading medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, announced today the continued adoption and success of the PROLIFT Wedge Expandable Spacer System.

“The PROLIFT Wedge offers controlled lordotic expansion of up to 15˚, which was an ideal solution for this patient. Suffering from severe disc degeneration, the collapsed discs required custom height expansion as well as sagittal alignment correction. Through the use of expandable technology such as PROLIFT Wedge, the surgical goals were completed,” said Dr. Adam Lewis of Flowood, MS.

PROLIFT Wedge Expandable Spacer System features Osseo-Loc® Surface Technology and is designed for Micro Invasive PLIF procedures. Wedge’s unique design offers lordotic expansion of up to 15˚ for sagittal correction. The device offers multiple heights and widths to fit each patient’s anatomy. Once the patient specific correction has been achieved, PROLIFT Wedge is auto locked in position and can be post-packed with graft in situ through the OSTEO-LINE™ Graft Delivery Device.
