A new patent has been issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for United States Patent No. 10,143,501 entitled “Expandable Interspinous Device”. This new patent relates to Aurora Spine’s family of minimally invasive spinal implants, bolstering the patents already issued to the company for its Zip family and its minimally invasive spinal technologies.
“Aurora is changing spine surgery, and we are thrilled that our patent has been issued by the USPTO. This patent further validates modern advancements of our minimally invasive spinal implants,” said Trent Northcutt, president and CEO of Aurora Spine, “and it maintains our ability to continue introducing advanced minimally invasive spinal technologies.”
“Our minimally invasive screwless portfolio provides spine surgeons with our ‘Patented’ One-Step locking mechanism that eliminates the use of a set screw. The success of our Screwless Procedure is a testament to our dedicated focus on disruptive technology and our commitment to simplifying the complex.”
This is Aurora’s fourth issued US patent. Aurora has several other US and international patent applications pending directed to the Zip system and its other minimally invasive spinal implant technologies.
