Camber Spine Technologies announces first implantations Of SPIRA-C Open Matrix Cervical Interbody

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
WAYNE, Pa., Feb. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Camber Spine, a leading innovator in spine and medical technologies, today announced the first surgeries using the company's proprietary SPIRA™-C Open Matrix Cervical Interbody device, a unique, interbody fusion implant consisting of spiral support arches and Surface by Design™ technology. The first cases were performed successfully this past week with several surgeons across the country performing multilevel ACDF procedures.

SPIRA™-C OPEN MATRIX CERVICAL INTERBODYDr. Michael Dorsi, M.D. of Ventura Neurosurgery
Dr. Michael Dorsi, M.D. of Ventura Neurosurgery was one of the first surgeon design team members to perform a multilevel procedure using SPIRA™-C this past week. According to Dr. Dorsi: "I really appreciate the design of this implant. Upon insertion, I feel as though the cage has immediate stability because of the roughened surface which provides significant friction. The arched design has large openings which allows for significant graft packing and creates a snowshoe-like effect of distributed load sharing which should decrease the risk of subsidence. The open matrix architecture eliminates the need for the central lumen in traditional cervical cages, potentially speeding up the mechanical fusion process, optimizing clinical and fusion outcomes."

Dr. Michael Dorsi, M.D., is a board-certified, fellowship trained neurosurgeon who has been providing state-of-the-art care to the greater Ventura County area since 2012. Dr. Dorsi attended The Johns Hopkins University, graduated Phi Beta Kappa with Highest Honors and a degree in Neuroscience and subsequently completed his residency training in neurosurgery. He was awarded the Cloward Award from the American Association of Neurological Surgeons for Fellowship Training in Minimally and Invasive Spine Surgery at UCLA.

SPIRA™-C was designed to address surgeon frustrations associated with traditional cervical interbody devices such as the need for immediate stability. SPIRA™-C was developed for Camber Spine under a collaborative agreement with the Institute for Musculoskeletal Science & Education (IMSE), an independent, full-service product development and engineering services company. With an extensive faculty of dedicated physicians, IMSE leverages the collaborative balance between engineering and surgeon ingenuity to create next-level medical devices. The SPIRA™-C design team included several John Hopkins trained Neurosurgeons, all with extensive backgrounds treating complicated cervical pathologies.
