RTI Surgical® Announces First Spine Surgery Using the HPS™ 2.0 Hybrid Performance System

UF startup RTI Surgical Holdings, Inc., a global surgical implant company, announced the first surgery using the HPS2.0 Hybrid Performance System, a modular pedicle screw system used for mono- and multi-segmental rigid, hybrid or dynamic posterior stabilization of the thoracolumbar spine. Dr. William Sears, a neurosurgeon and Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, performed the surgery at Sydney Adventist Hospital in Sydney, Australia.

The rigidity of segments treated with spinal fusion surgery can result in abnormal, increased loads on adjacent, untreated segments, which can lead to adjacent segment degeneration (ASD) and cause new symptoms. The HPS 2.0 Hybrid Performance System offers an alternative to conventional, rigid implant systems by providing the option of dynamically stabilizing one or more segments adjoining a fusion, which may reduce the length of the fusion while preserving motion, help to alleviate pain and reduce the risk of ASD.
