Atlas Spine announced successful completion of its 50th surgical procedure and >100 devices implanted with the HiJak™ AC Expandable Cervical Interbody Fusion Device (IBFD). The product is now in full launch.
HiJak addresses complex cervical conditions, and is reportedly the first expandable cervical IBFD on the market to adjust both height and lordosis to restore balanced sagittal alignment.
CEO Matt Baynham said, “It’s not just about fusion anymore. As studies and clinical evidence continue to show, the value of restoring lordosis and global sagittal balance to the cervical spine is becoming more widely recognized and prioritized by spine surgeons today. With implant options that can achieve as much as 20 degrees of angulation, HiJak’s expandable capability plays right into this surgical objective. This kind of mechanical advantage was unavailable to surgeons prior to the introduction of HiJak.”
Over the next 18 months, the company will release additional minimally invasive devices that complement the HiJak platform.
