Dr. Nima Salari performs first U.S. spine surgery using Medacta International’s “MySpine MC” technique

DISC’s own Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, Dr. Nima Salari, was the first in the United States to perform a surgery utilizing Medacta International’s “MySpine MC” technique. Below is an excerpt from the full article on Business Wire:

Dr. Salari’s patient, the first to undergo surgery with MySpine MC, had dynamic spondylolisthesis at the L4/L5 level with severe spinal stenosis and neurogenic claudication, complicated by a history of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. “Given my patient’s condition and history,” Dr. Salari said, “I needed a minimally invasive option that would allow for a wide central decompression reinforced by excellent stabilization. We also needed to minimize anesthesia time for the patient, so it needed to be quick. The ability to pre-plan the surgery and work with a product that had been fully customized for the patient proved incredibly valuable. The surgery was fast, the screw placement was accurate, and the fixation was reliable. To top it off, we were able to reduce the need for intra-operative fluoroscopy, limiting the patient’s radiation exposure.”
