SAN DIEGO, Sept. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- NuVasive, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUVA), the leader in spine technology innovation, focused on transforming spine surgery with minimally disruptive, procedurally-integrated solutions, today announced the Company will showcase industry-leading solutions for creating better clinical outcomes for spine procedures at the Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (SMISS) Annual Forum being held September 6-8, 2018, in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace.
During SMISS 2018, NuVasive will feature its Lateral Single-Position Surgery procedure benefits, which may include reducing the number of times a patient has to be repositioned for greater operating room (OR) efficiency, along with the other benefits of minimally invasive spine surgery. Attendees will hear directly from leading surgeons of the procedure and learn what NuVasive is doing to incorporate advanced materials into its surgical implants.
