The Center for Spine Care continues to be on the leading edge of new, modern technologies to treat back and neck pain. Dr. Michael J. Musacchio is using the new AccuLIF implant and also is the first surgeon in the world to implant the AccuLIF in a patient through a minimally invasive tubular retractor approach.
The AccuLIF implant is a new expandable interbody cage from CoAlign® Innovations Inc. that can be used for a range of lumbar spinal fusion procedures. This system employs a hydraulic expansion technology and locking mechanism to allow placement and expansion of this low-profile implant into the lumbar interbody space to achieve an accurate fit and placement for restoration of vertebral height and alignment. The implant is placed via a minimally invasive approach and is an exciting new technology that enhances the ability to perform minimally invasive lumbar fusions.
This true minimally invasive approach means a quicker recovery time, less blood loss, less tissue disruption for the patient, and a quicker return to normal activities.
“The AccuLIF implant really enhances our ability to restore spinal balance and stability through a minimally invasive approach, Dr. Musacchio says. “This implant is a great step forward in the evolution of our spinal fusion techniques.”Center for Spine Care – The real experts in minimally invasive spine treatments.
