OR AKIVA, Israel, February 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Expanding Orthopedics Inc. (EOI), a privately held medical device company focused on developing and commercializing innovative expandable devices for spine surgery, is excited to announce that Dr. Jonathan Lewin of North Shore Forest Hills Hospital in New York is the first surgeon in New Jersey to adopt the FLXfit™ articulated and lordotic expandable cage as his choice of treatment for MIS TLIF (transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion) surgery.

Dr. Lewin, Director of Spine Surgery at North Shore Forest Hills Hospital in New York and Director of the Center for Musculosketal Disorders in Englewood, New Jersey, is a leader in minimally invasive and endoscopic spine surgery. As Dr. Lewin states, "I was immediately impressed by the FLXfit's immense footprint and was excited to finally be able to insert a big cage from the back through a MIS single portal incision." He explains, "The FLXfit™ is the only cage available on the market that dials in lordosis within the disc space. This enables us to offer every patient a customized implant that will adapt to the patient's unique anatomy and provide the best possible fit and stability."

Dr. Lewin adds, "We are excited to adopt advanced new technologies for MIS surgery as we have expanded our practice with the addition of Dr. Seth Grossman and Dr. Vigmin Vora to cope with the increased demand for our services. Our goal is to become one of the leading MIS spine surgery teams in New Jersey. The adoption of such unique MIS technologies enables us to offer our patients the best possible treatment options leading to faster recovery."

Ofer Bokobza, CEO of Expanding Orthopedics, says, "We are excited to collaborate with Dr. Lewin and his team and congratulate them for joining a growing list of spine surgeons selecting the FLXfit as their new standard of care."
