SPINAL SIMPLICITY

If you suffer from chronic back or leg pain, and have not found relief from
conservative treatments, your doctor may recommend Minuteman®.

Minuteman Implant
Minuteman Spinal Simplicity

Spinal Simplicity’s Minuteman® is an interspinous-interlaminar fusion device. It is intended for the stabilization and fusion of the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine. The device is designed for attachment to the posterior non-cervical spine at the spinous processes through its bilateral fixation plates. The Minuteman® is intended for use with bone graft material placed within the device.

The Minuteman® provides immobilization, stabilization, and fusion of the spinal segments. The core threaded post allows for optimal placement and a wide range of sizes allows for enhanced anatomical fit.

Conditions Treated

The Minuteman® G5 Fusion Plate is a posterior, non-pedicle fusion device, intended for use at a single interspace in the non-cervical spine (T1-S1). It is intended for plate fixation/attachment to spinous processes for the purpose of achieving instrumented posterior arthrodesis (i.e., fusion) in the following conditions:

  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis;
  • Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) (defined as back pain of discogenic origin with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies); and/or
  • Spondylolisthesis.

The Minuteman® G5 Fusion Plate is intended for use with bone graft material. The device may be implanted via a lateral transverse approach (L1-S1) or a posterior approach (T1-S1).

{"Posterolateral fusion with the Minuteman device has been transformative for my patients. This approach carries the advantage of a minimal incision, a muscle sparing technique, and a low profile implant. Patients appreciate the in and out surgery and short recovery period. Our recent multi-center study reinforced safety and efficacy, and I'm looking forward to continuing to review the growing body of evidence supporting the procedure. It is great to give patients hope where there was none, and to partner with patients to help them regain their functionality."{

{"Since offering the Minuteman, we have seen many positive life changes in our patients. This muscle sparing approach allows for a wider range of patients to be considered candidates. Specifically, those patients that cannot afford to miss work, don’t have enough time off allowance, or lack the recovery support needed after a traditional fusion. One of my favorite cases was a single female bartender in her mid 60’s struggling to balance her physically demanding work schedule and her crippling back and leg pain. Minuteman has given the patient her independence back, with minimal disruptions to her life. This is what truly helping people looks like."{

{"As a board-certified neurosurgeon with over 30 years experience, I have found that the Minuteman implant provides a groundbreaking solution for patients suffering with back pain. The procedure is not only virtually painless and risk-free, but it also rapid relief and enables patients to quickly resume their regular daily activities with remarkable ease."{

{"The Minuteman device allows me to back up a lateral lumbar inter body fusion with posterior fixation using the least invasive approach. The Minuteman approach allows me to perform posterior fusion and stabilization through the same incisions used for the lateral inter body fusion avoiding the morbidity of a direct posterior approach and allowing for a single position 360 fusion."{
