What is the Minuteman Fusion Plate?
The Minuteman Fusion Plate is a minimally-invasive fusion device meant for patients with degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, spinal trauma, or spinal tumors. It’s a fusion device that stabilizes the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine while facilitating bone regeneration and fusion. The medical implant is attached to the posterior non-cervical spine, and the bone grafting material is placed within the implant to encourage spinal fusion. It stabilizes the spinal column and addresses the underlying spinal problems.
Benefits of the Minuteman Fusion Plate
Traditional spinal fusions require complex surgeries involving metal rods, braces, pedicle screws, and spinous process plates. The Minuteman Fusion Plate is performed with a small incision and no major surgeries, which, in turn, reduces the downtime and the risk of complications. It also simplifies bone grafting because the grafting material is placed within the device.
