RENO, NV (March 22, 2017)-- On March 7, Dr. James Lynch became the first surgeon in Nevada to use Titan Spine’s nano surface technology for ALIF and XLIF procedures. The Titan Spine surface promotes differentiation into bone-forming cells. This increases bone production around the implant site and increases the potential for a faster and more robust fusion. In addition, the cellular process set in motion by the Titan Spine nano surface technology compells the body to produce and regulate its own BMP at the key stages of the fusion process. This supports new bone growth without requiring the use of external BMP. To read more, please click here.

Dr. Edward Perry is the first surgeon in Nevada to perform a multilevel MIS-Oblique Lateral Interbody Fusion (OLIF)

Dr Edward Perry is first surgeon in Nevada to perform multi-level MIS OLIF procedure, Oblique lateral interbody fusion to correct flatback syndrome, degenerative disc disease with minimal interruption

Reno, Nevada--Dr. Edward Perry, a fellowship-trained neurosurgeon at SpineNevada, is the first surgeon in Nevada to perform a multilevel minimally invasive surgery (MIS) Oblique Lateral Interbody Fusion (OLIF) for degenerative lumbar spine disease.

The OLIF procedure was performed by Dr. Perry using O-arm stealth guidance technology that minimizes the incision size and allows precise implant placement. Following the OLIF, Dr. Perry completed a necessary posterior fusion using the O-arm in July 2015.

Within 8 weeks, Thomas was back to work as a high school football coach and nearing complete pain relief.

In contrast to traditional spine surgery, the OLIF technique (Medtronic®) allows the specially trained surgeon to avoid interrupting the psoas muscle — in turn eliminating related nerve injury within the muscle. Image below demonstrates the lumbar curve correction provided by the OLIF procedure, from a 23 degree curve pre-surgery to a 36 degree curve post-surgery. Learn more here.

Reno, Nevada, March 2, 2015 -- Dr. Edward Perry was the second surgeon to use the O-arm Surgical Imaging System at Renown Regional Medical Center. The O-arm, as the term implies, circles the operating table, and provides 3D images of the spine to the spine surgeon before and during the spine surgery.

The guidance of the O-arm system allowed Dr. Perry to perform a successful revision spine surgery. Dr. Perry removed failed hardware from a previous spine surgery performed by another surgeon and completed a stabilizing lumbar spinal fusion. The procedure was successful and the patient left the hospital happy.

The O-Arm Surgical Imaging System provides surgeons with real-time 3D images and 2D images. The technology allows surgeons to more precisely perform complex spine surgeries and revision surgeries while using a minimally invasive incision.
