Our History

Dr. Harold Hess, a practicing neurosurgeon, and Todd Moseley, an entrepreneur with over 30 years’ experience in orthopedics, founded Spinal Simplicity, LLC in 2008. Soon after, the company began focusing on the Lateral Approach lumbar fusion technology. In May 2011, our company received CE approval for its initial product, the Minuteman. Our company also earned ISO 13485 certification for its quality management system. The Minuteman G3 device gained FDA 510(k) clearance in January 2015. Spinal Simplicity acquired 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). This clearance is 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 incorporated history into our mission and vision by drawing inspiration from the Minutemen! Minutemen were civilian colonists who independently formed militia companies and were self-trained in weaponry, tactics, and military strategies. This comprised the American colonial partisan militia during the American Revolutionary War. They earned their name for being ready at a minute’s notice. 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. We champion uncompromising quality with products proudly made in the USA.
