Using benders to add lordosis to the rod portion of the implant Dr. Massengale was able to preserve the sagittal balance of the lumbar segment. Use of the Annex implant allowed him to avoid the process of having to remove the hardware from the patient’s prior surgery. This is a versatile implant with varying rod lengths that can be delivered in a percutaneous approach or a mini open manner. Nerves&Bones, Inc is proud to distribute this novel technology from SpineWave, Inc.
