Camber Spine announced the first surgeries using the company’s proprietary SPIRA-C Open Matrix Cervical Interbody device.
The interbody fusion implant consists of spiral support arches and “Surface by Design” technology. The first cases were performed successfully recently by several surgeons across the country.
Dr. Michael Dorsi, M.D., of Ventura Neurosurgery was one of the first surgeon design team members to perform a multilevel procedure using SPIRA-C.
“I really appreciate the design of this implant. Upon insertion, I feel as though the cage has immediate stability because of the roughened surface, which provides significant friction,” Dorsi said. “The arched design has large openings which allows for significant graft packing and creates a snowshoe-like effect of distributed load sharing which should decrease the risk of subsidence. The open matrix architecture eliminates the need for the central lumen in traditional cervical cages, potentially speeding up the mechanical fusion process, optimizing clinical and fusion outcomes.”
Dorsi is a board-certified, fellowship-trained neurosurgeon who has been providing care to the Ventura County area since 2012.
