Aurora Spine Corporation has announced the first surgery using the Discovery interbody cage with TiNano plasma spray coating. The surgery, a multi-level case, was performed at Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside, California, USA by Neville Alleyne.
“The new TiNano titanium spray blast coating has increased the surface area for superior osteointegration. TiNano is the next generation of interbody fusion cages,” says Alleyne. Alleyne is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon and the director of the Orthopaedic Spine Center at Tri-City Medical Center. He uses minimally invasive approaches to spinal disorders.
The Aurora Discovery cages with TiNano plasma spray coating allow for bone ingrowth due to its porous structure. The surgery marks the introduction of the TiNano product line, the most recent addition of advanced spinal products in the Aurora MIS portfolio.
