Is the Endoskeleton right for you?

You may be wondering if you are a candidate for the Endoskeleton implant.

If you:

  1. Are a skeletally mature patient with one or more of the following spinal conditions:
    • Degenerative disc disease (DDD) at one or two lumbar levels from L2-S1 or one cervical level from C3-C7
    • Spondylolisthesis (when one vertebra slips forward over the vertebra below it) or retrolisthesis (when one vertebra slips backward over the vertebra below it, narrowing the spinal canal space) at the involved level(s)
    • Spinal stenosis
    • Herniated disc
    • Infections, tumors, fractures, scoliosis or deformity
    • Neck pain (with or without arm pain, sometimes called cervical radiculopathy) or back pain (with or without leg pain, sometimes called sciatica)
  2. Have received at least six months of non-operative treatment for a spine-related lower back/lumbar issue or 6 weeks of non-operative treatment for a spine-related neck/cervical issue. Non-operative treatment includes treatments such as pain medication, physical therapy, chiropractic, and injections.
  3. Are a candidate for one or more of the following spinal fusion procedures:
    • ALIF, with or without supplemental posterior instrumentation
    • TLIF
    • PLIF or Oblique procedures
    • Anterior cervical interbody fusion
    • Single or multi-level fusions
