Tyber Medical, a privately held company focused on developing innovative medical devices for private label opportunities and advancing the science of bioengineered surfaces, announces the full commercial launch of its lateral access system, 2nd generation lateral PEEK/titanium composite interbody, and lateral plating system.
The Tyber Medical lateral access retractor employs a popular 3-blade design for surgeons with minimally invasive expertise. The approach and disc preparatory instruments were designed for multiple levels including the difficult-to-access L4/L5. The interbody is made from TyPEEK, a titanium plasma-sprayed PEEK composite. The lateral plating system provides three points of fixation in each vertebral body with only two screws. The system aims to eliminate some instrumentation required by other systems on the market, thereby minimizing surgical steps, and freeing up real estate normally required by four screw plates.
CEO Jeff Tyber noted that MIS lateral procedures and exotic material interbodies are two of the hottest growth areas in the spine market.
He added “The Tyber Medical private label model allows our customers to rapidly access this market without spending resources on development and, at the same time, eliminating timeline risk.”
