The acquired platform includes a polyaxial interspinous process device and percutaneous facet screw system for minimally invasive surgical treatments for lumbar spinal disorders, Austin, Texas-based Wenzel Spine said.
“I am pleased that Wenzel Spine has added the PrimaLOK Systems to their product portfolio. We are very happy to be partnered with a Spine focused company and believe Wenzel Spine is the ideal partner to bring the full potential of the PrimaLOK Systems to market. There are tremendous MIS innovation opportunities in combining the advantages of the PrimaLOK and VariLift-LX technologies,” PrimaLok inventor and Texas Spine & Joint Hospital founder Dr. Charles Gordon said in a prepared release.
Wenzel Spine said it plans to integrate the PrimaLok platforms into its pipeline of MIS products currently in development. The PrimaLok systems have already seen a limited release, with a wider US release slated for the 2nd quarter of the year.
“This acquisition provides our distributors and surgeons a powerful combination of MIS solutions. When paired with our VariLift-LX stand-alone, expandable, interbody technology, surgeons now have the ability to provide supplemental fixation, when needed, without having to revert to pedicle screw constructs. In addition, this expands our current product portfolio while strengthening our development pipeline and demonstrating our commitment to the development of innovative MIS solutions to our distribution and surgeon partners,” Wenzel Spine CEO & prez Chad Neely said in a press release.
