The PROLIFT Expandable interbody system provides a micro invasive solution for TLIF and PLIF procedures with in-situ expansion for restoration of normal anatomic disc height and decompression of neural elements. Streamlined instrumentation provides the surgeon minimal tissue disruption and nerve retraction while achieving surgical goals and restoring patient alignment.
Multiple lordotic and parallel options to assist in the restoration of normal spino-pelvic alignment
Controlled in-situ expansion allows for foraminal and disc height restoration, as well as physiological levels of lordosis
Bulleted tip simplifies insertion in collapsed degenerative discs without compromising the apophyseal ring
Tactile and visual confirmation prevents over distraction
