Dr. Jeffery Rowe of Main Line Spine recently completed the first Minuteman® G3 procedure in Pennsylvania. The Minuteman® G3 was developed by Spinal Simplicity LLC as an innovative, minimally invasive, simple solution to treat complex spinal disorders.
The device is intended for the temporary fixation of the thoracic, lumbar and sacral spine while awaiting bony fusion to occur. It is designed for attachment to the posterior non-cervical spine at the spinous processes through its bilateral locking plates, and it is intended for use with bone graft material placed within the device. The Minuteman® G3 may be appropriate for patients with degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, trauma, or tumor.
The Minuteman® G3 is an option among an extensive range of alternative minimally-invasive procedures and therapies that Main Line Spine considers for complex spine problems.
