Spineway, in collaboration with its Peruvian distributor, presented its operating techniques to some one hundred local surgeons during a recent symposium in Peru.
Established in Peru since 2014 thanks to the leading distributor in orthopaedic surgery and neurosurgery, Spineway decided to accelerate sales of its Mont Blanc and Kili product lines in South America.
In line with its market-development strategy, the group, represented by Gilles Norotte, orthopaedic surgeon at the Gap Hospital in Gap, France, was asked to present its approach to the biomechanics of the spine and operating technique for anterior surgery, leading to a scientific understanding of degenerative conditions. After academic presentations, there was a workshop, where Gilles Norotte demonstrated the technique he uses to quickly and easily reach the anterior part of the lumbar spine.
An anterior surgical approach allows for direct access to the vertebral bodies and diseased disks. This surgery, which has been used in the past, is now seeing a revival and being developed further with stabilization cages such as KILI, which was designed in partnership with Norotte and manufactured by Spineway.
The instruments designed and manufactured by Spineway allow for optimal correction and restoration of the lumbar spine’s curves to treat pain and disorders resulting from severe deformities in the lumbar spine, particular in adults and the elderly.
Spineway thus continues its market development while also building its name recognition with spine professionals in Latin America.
