About Us

Spinal Simplicity is a company dedicated to the creation of innovative simple solutions for complex spinal problems. With a focus on quality, our products are designed to further enhance patient care while providing physicians with a greater array of minimally invasive devices.

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. In January 2015, FDA 510(k) clearance was granted for the Minuteman G3 device. 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. On December 17, 2021, Spinal Simplicity announced the much-anticipated FDA clearance of a new Indication for Use (IFU) for its Minuteman family of implants, Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. These are significant milestones that allow Spinal Simplicity to compete in the fast-growing, minimally invasive spine market.

Many have asked the question, “Why the name Minuteman?” As a proud American company, we chose to incorporate history into our mission and vision! Minutemen were civilian colonists who independently formed militia companies self-trained in weaponry, tactics, and military strategies, comprising the American colonial partisan militia during the American Revolutionary War. They were known for being ready at a minute’s notice, hence the name. Just like the minutemen of history, Team Minuteman is highly mobile, dedicated, and able to assemble quickly. We strive daily to be a leader in innovative, simplified surgical solutions, championing uncompromising quality with products proudly made in the USA.
