Spinal Simplicity Minuteman®

Content Contributor

If you suffer from chronic back or leg pain, and have not found relief from conservative treatments, Minuteman® may be right for you.

The following questions will help determine if the Minuteman® System is right for you.

  • Does your back or leg pain worsen with prolonged standing or walking?
  • Does your back or leg pain improve while you are sitting?
  • Does leaning forward improve your pain?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be a candidate for implantation of the Minuteman®. The Minuteman® offers a less invasive alternative to traditional fusion procedures. When it comes to stabilizing the spine, the Minuteman® has been shown to be comparable to screws and rods. This helps alleviate symptoms of back and leg pain. For people who are not able to physically handle a more traditional fusion or long recovery, the Minuteman® may be a particularly good option.

The Minuteman® is intended for plate fixation/attachment to spinous processes for the purpose of achieving supplemental fusion in the following conditions: Degenerative Disc Disease, Spondylolisthesis, Trauma, and Tumor.
