FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Winston-Salem, NC: July 16, 2008: VG Innovations, LLC (VGI), announced today that it has launched its’ revolutionary new minimally invasive spine stabilization system called VerteLoc™. VerteLoc™ is designed to address minor spinal instabilities by effectively stabilizing the spinal facets, which are multi-directional joints of the spinal column.
“Our goal was to design a complete system that was minimally invasive and effective in stabilization,” stated VGI’s President and CEO, Dan Grayson. “We believe the procedure could make a significant difference in the way surgeons address minor spinal instabilities caused by various indications. Our unique patent pending allograft implant design, which combines two unique geometric shapes, and innovative directional instrumentation have been designed to allow our surgeon users to replicate the VerteLoc™ procedure regarding a variety surgical approaches,” Grayson added.
The first surgery, using the VerteLoc™ system, was performed on May 27, 2008. VGI already has an established distributor network in major metropolitan areas of the United States and expects to build upon that network rapidly.
The VerteLoc™ Minimally Invasive Spine Stabilization System is designed to allow earlier intervention in the continuum of spinal care. The procedure should prolong or prevent more invasive spine procedures in indicated patients, which would provide significant benefits to the quality of life versus traditional methods of spinal fusion.
