TRULIFT® First Case

TRULIFT® First Case


Huntley, IL, May 11th, 2021 –

Life Spine, a leading medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, announced today the completion of the first surgeries with the TRULIFT Expandable Spacer System.

“MIS surgery continues to evolve and as a result, clinical outcomes continue to improve. Use of expandable technology, such as the TRULIFT Expandable Spacer System, has shown a significant reduction in procedure time and improvement in my patient outcomes. TRULIFT allows for restoration of anatomical alignment and maintains its length during expansion offering increased endplate coverage,” said Dr. Richard Weiner of Dallas, TX.

The TRULIFT Expandable Spacer System with Osseo-Loc® Surface Technology is the next generation of micro invasive technology for TLIF and PLIF procedures. Allowing for true positioning and a less invasive procedure, TRULIFT provides cephalad/caudal height expansion while minimizing tissue disruption, nerve retraction, and helping restore patient alignment.

“I believe that MIS surgery provides significant benefits to my patients. TRULIFT allows for a generous 6mm of expansion and the implant maintains its proximity to the endplates throughout its entire expansion range. This adds to the armamentarium of MIS options giving me more choices to match surgical treatment algorithms,” said Dr. John Czerwein of Providence, RI.

TRULIFT Key Features and Benefits:

  • Ability to collapse and expand up to 6mm in situ
  • Maintains length during expansion for maximum endplate coverage
  • Osseo-Loc Titanium Surface Technology
  • Available in 10 & 12mm widths and lordosis of 0, 7, 12 and 15˚
  • In situ graft delivery and post-packing capabilities
