Dr. Edward Perry first in Nevada to use Nuvasive’s ALIF Modulus
Reno, Nevada, July 27, 2021 — Dr. Edward Perry is the first surgeon in Nevada to use Nuvasive’s Modulus ALIF, a 3D-printed porous titanium implant for anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF).
Benefits of the Modulus ALIF include:
Proprietary Modulus titanium design: The porous surface architecture is engineered to participate in fusion and promote new bone on-growth and in-growth.1 The proprietary design also allows for enhanced visualization compared to solid titanium implants.
Zero-step locking mechanism: This feature provides definitive tactile and visual confirmation, enabling confidence in a surgeon’s screw placement in the implant.
Low-profile, versatile instrumentation: The device’s instrumentation can be utilized in both supine ALIF and XALIF, supporting a surgeon’s preferred surgical approach.
“Modulus ALIF has an angled inserter for tough to mobilize vessels. In addition, the surface structure helps improve fusion rates and patient outcomes,” said Edward C. Perry, III, M.D., neurological spine surgeon at Swift Spine Institute in Reno, NV. “The device’s instrumentation allows even my more challenging cases to go smooth.”
