One of the most common causes of back pain is spinal stenosis of the lower back – a narrowing of the spinal canal that causes pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots. Fixing the problem usually involves spinal fusion, an operation to permanently join two or more vertebrae bones so there is no movement between them.
It’s hardly an ideal solution.
The Israeli company Premia Spine is offering a unique and – it believes – better option. Its trademarked TOPS (Total Posterior Solution) System aims to revolutionize the spinal implant market in the same way that total hip and total knee replacement systems made hip and knee fusions a thing of the past.“We believe patients suffering from spinal stenosis can also get joint replacement rather than fusion,” CEO Ron Sacher tells ISRAEL21c. “We’ve developed an implant that recreates all functions of the posterior spinal column, where there are important joints, ligaments and bony structures that provide control over twisting, bending and flexing.”
TOPS allows the surgeon to remove diseased parts of the spine and then stabilize it with an artificial joint that restores the function of a normal posterior spinal column.
