Our History

Spinal Simplicity, LLC was founded in 2008 by Dr. Harold Hess, a practicing neurosurgeon, and Todd Moseley, an entrepreneur with over 30 years’ experience in orthopedics. The company began focusing on minimally invasive Lateral Approach lumbar fusion technology. In May 2011, Spinal Simplicity received CE approval for its initial product, the Minuteman, as well as ISO 13485 certification for its quality management system.

Spinal Simplicity was granted FDA 510(k) clearance for the HA Minuteman® G3 in August of 2015 and for the HA Minuteman® G3R in January of 2017. These are significant milestones that allow Spinal Simplicity to compete in the fast-growing, minimally invasive spine market.
