Centinel Spine achieves milestone implantation of 20,000 STALIF C cervical integrated interbody devices

Centinel Spine, Inc. (Centinel Spine), the pioneer of spinal Stand-Alone, No-Profile®, Integrated Interbody™ devices has now implanted 20,000 STALIF C cervical Integrated Interbody devices. The STALF C device is implanted during cervical fusion procedures to treat degenerative spinal disorders.

"This is an important milestone for Centinel Spine and our STALIF C product family. It represents our proven success and heritage of healing in anterior column support procedures," said John Viscogliosi, CEO and President of Centinel Spine. "We are pleased at the continued adoption of our STALIF® technology as we strive to meet our vision of becoming the leading anterior column support spine franchise."

Due to proven biomechanics, and now the Ti-ACTIVE™ coating, surgeons are increasingly using STALIF C and STALIF C-Ti™ Integrated Interbody devices instead of traditional plate and interbody combinations for their cervical fusion procedures. STALIF C offers surgeons and patients consistent clinical results with only a single incision procedure that is minimally invasive and tissue sparing.

"In my clinical experience utilizing the STALIF C device for over five years, it has been shown to be very effective in treating my degenerative spine patients," said Dr. Said Elshihabi, WellStar Neurosurgery, Marietta, Georgia.

Dr. Elshihabi continues, "STALIF C offers my patients a proven technology with less metal, less tissue trauma and equivalent bio-mechanical strength to traditional implants. Ti-ACTIVE coated STALIF C-Ti represents Centinel's commitment of being a leader in this space and providing patients with state of the art implant technology."

The No-Profile STALIF C Integrated Interbody System was designed to simplify surgery and reduce the number of surgical steps required. This design also allows the device to nest fully within the confines of the vertebral body, leaving the anatomy unchanged external to the interbody. The STALIF C three-screw construct features the Anti Back-Out® technology, provides compressive fixation at the graft site and is proven to be biomechanically equivalent to a cage and plate.1,2

STALIF C and the complete STALIF® product family continue to raise the gold standard in Integrated Interbody technology.
