Signus Medical announced the release of the DIALOG Sacroiliac Joint Fusion System at the 2009 NASS Meeting in San Francisco, California.
Signus Medical announced the release of the DIALOG Sacroiliac Joint Fusion System at the 2009 NASS Meeting in San Francisco, California. The innovative DIALOG system was developed by Signus Medical and Minneapolis based orthopaedic spine surgeon, Dr. John G. Stark. Dr. Stark is a pioneer in the study of diagnosing and managing sacroiliac joint pain and its treatment.
The DIALOG system utilizes a patented distraction-interposition method to provide a simple and safe fusion technique for the sacroiliac joint. Reproducible placement of a uniquely designed bone dowel is achieved using a patented sequential instrumentation approach with ligamentotaxis stabilizing the joi nt during the fusion process.
In the past, SI joint problems have been under recognized and commonly misdiagnosed. The unique approach of the DIALOG system allows the surgeon to more safely access the SI joint’s deep position and subtle mechanics, which in the past were seemingly unapproachable.
Founded in 2000, Signus Medical, LLC distributes a full line of spinal implants and instrumentation. For more information on all of the Signus Medical products please visit: Signus Medical Home.
