Renowned as the third largest medical device company in global spine industry, NuVasive®, a pioneer in eXtreme Lateral Interbody Fusion (XLIF), has progressively and successfully developed minimally disruptive surgical products and procedures for spine surgery since its inception in 1999. Founded in San Diego, through innovative technological advancement, NuVasive® has progressed major spine surgery ranging from cervical, lumbar and thoracic applications to neuromonitoring services.


XLIF® eXtreme Lateral Interbody Fusion


Self Photos / Files - XLIF_4

The XLIF technique is a minimally disruptive surgical procedure performed through the side of the body. It is designed to treat a range of spinal pathologies such as degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, and scoliosis.



Using patented nerve monitoring technology NVM5® system, the surgeon achieves lateral (side) access to the spinal column, avoiding any major nerves in the area between the incision and the column.



XLIF is the only lateral approach procedure proven by over 10 years of clinical evidence. Over 400 published clinical studies support the procedure, documenting positive clinical outcomes such as reduced blood loss, less time in the O.R., and shortened hospital stays as compared to traditional posterior fusion procedures.

MAS®PLIF Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion


Self Photos / Files - MASPLIF_3

MAS ® PLIF is designed with the intention of allowing conventional surgical goals under minimally disruptive exposure to be achieved: full decompression under complete visualization, interbody fusion, and stabilization with bilateral screws. Using a medialized approach, the MAS® PLIF Procedure is designed to eliminate the need to retract muscle lateral to the facet, and facilitate conventional surgical principles.

The XLIF procedure is supported by NVM5®, a clinically-validated nerve monitoring system that helps identify the location and integrity of nerves within the psoas muscle. This surgeon-directed system is designed to quickly determine relative nerve proximity to improve reproducibility of the approach.



With the significant neurological risks associated with spinal surgery, technology capable of mitigating potential complications is invaluable. NVM5® System enables the potential to detect neurological compromise at the earliest stage in any spine surgery. This system and the technology behind it, provides a new level of insight and control in the O.R., resulting in the added confidence that comes with knowing that patient safety has been provided.







An innovative, market-leading solution to help patients with limb length discrepancy (LLD). The PRECICE Systel is an intramedullary device that once implanted utilizes an External Remote Controller (ERC) to non-invasively lengthen the femur and tibia.



Through propriety magnetic technology, the PRECICE ERC lengthens the PRECICE device with Precision Rate control. Each patient’s lengthening is customized based on the physician’s lengthening protocol. This customizable programming of the ERC allows for lengthening sessions to be performed in the comfort of their home.




MAGEC® System

The MAGEC System utilizes innovative magnetic technology within adjustable growing rods and an External Remote Controller (ERC) to help eliminate distraction surgeries from the treatment for early-onset scoliosis (EOS). As a result, MAGEC helps reduce associated complication risks from repetitive surgeries, and simplifies the care and journey of an EOS patient.
