For cervical spine procedures, a micro-invasive 19G access needle facilitates entry to the disc utilizing an anterolateral approach. Disruption to soft tissues is minimized through this technique, facilitating a faster return to activity versus more invasive procedures.
Within the lower spine, a micro-invasive 17G access needle facilitates access to the disc via a posterolateral approach. Disruption to soft tissues is minimized by this approach, facilitating a faster return to activity versus more invasive procedures. (Where patient anatomy dictates, a longer 8” needle and SpineWand are also available).
A mains powered controller unit supports the plasma field generated by the SpineWand. Your local representative can arrange a generator for you.
SpineWand currently uses the CIQ controller from Arthocare, and the controller is operated by the physician using a foot pedal.
