Our mantra remains in promoting the safest means of bony fixation with a significant reduction of radiation and time, while mitigating the inherent risks of neuro-vascular insults. We are poised to bring safety and confidence to any hospital or surgery center where spine cases using pedicle fixation are performed addressing a range of cases from primary to complex deformities.”
