Frequently Asked Questions

The spine is a complex set of structures and there may be multiple underlying causes for back pain, leg pain, or other symptoms. These include but are not limited to:

  • The back muscles are working “overtime” to compensate for spinal alignment problems.

  • The spinal segment is unstable.

  • Arthritis of the facet joints.

A pinched nerve can be caused by pressure from a bone spur, or by a herniated or bulging disc. Because spinal nerves carry signals to the lower extremities, a pinched nerve can be painful all along its path.

Your history, physical examination and images such as plain films, MRI, and CT scans provide valuable information to yourphysician regarding the root cause of your symptoms.

Spinal fusion is a stabilization technique designed to address symptoms associated with spinal instability.

Minimally invasive surgery is a surgery minimizing surgical incisions to reduce trauma to the body.

"As a minimally invasive surgeon, I am excited about the ability to perform MIS procedures while remaining in the midline. The ability to target MIS screws with a simple tool that reduces radiation is particularly appealing to me."

"LinkSPINE provides novel, low profile and robust fixation that may truly minimize damage/disruption of the adjacent facet joints. There are many options with this one system, and it is the only cannulated MIS cortical screw on the market."

"The Midline Choice platform offers several "no rod" options, providing a unique solution to patients who are concerned about pedicle screws and rods. TargetLINK is the first system I've seen which allows for MIS screw targeting without significant capital expenditure and OR real estate."

dhruv pateder | m.d.

"I have tracked patient outcomes in my practice with a variety of different techniques, and I am impressed with LinkSPINE's ability to deliver MIS outcomes with less need for radiation, a much shorter learning curve and shorter OR time. The continuum of options allows the surgeon to match the amount of stabilization to the complexity of the patient's problem."
