What Is The Minuteman®?
The Minuteman® is a minimally invasive, interspinous-interlaminar fusion device intended for the fixation and stabilization of the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine while awaiting bony fusion to occur The Minuteman® is designed for attachment to the posterior non-cervical spine at the spinous processes through its bilateral locking plates, and it is intended for use with bone graft material placed within the device. It provides immobilization and stabilization of the spinal segments. The core threaded post allows for optimal placement and a wide range of sizes allows for enhanced anatomical fit. The Minuteman® is delivered sterile and individually packed.
Developed by Spinal Simplicity, the FDA approved spinal fusion device Minuteman G3R offers a revolutionary approach for spine surgeons and pain management specialists. The minimally invasive device provides fixation and stabilization of the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine while bone graft material propagates and ultimately forms a full fusion between vertebrae in the spinal column.
Features & Benefits
Alternative to traditional pedicle screws and other spinous process plates.
With 12mm removable portion of the implant body.
Preservation of the supraspinatus ligament helps maintain stabilization of the spine.
Eliminates the lateral dissection of the healthy tissue (neural monitoring is not required).
5 different sizes to accommodate variations in the anatomy in our patients.
Lateral MIS approach is above the facet joints, avoiding the neural and vascular structures.
