Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, announced today that it was named a winner in the Eighth Annual Spine Technology Awards, which highlight engineering excellence, innovation and advancement of spinal care, for its LONGBOW Expandable Lateral Spacer System.

"We are honored to be recognized by Robin Young and Orthopedics This Week," said Michael S. Butler, President and CEO at Life Spine. "The award is a key milestone for this first in class microinvasive expandable lateral product.”

Dr. John Czerwein, Jr. of the Center for Orthopedics, Inc. in Johnston, Rhode Island added, “It is no surprise to me that LONGBOW was chosen for this impressive award. LONGBOW can substantially reduce muscle and tissue retraction and can be back-filled in-situ with about three times as much graft material as a traditional static lateral interbody. These benefits are recognized by myself and my patients as they can reduce operating time, diminish post-surgical pain and speed up recovery time.”
