joimax® Wins 2019 Spine Technology Award for its Integrated Navigation Tracking & Control System, Intracs®em and Exhibits at NASS

Irvine, CA – joimax®, a leading developer and marketer of complete systems for endoscopic minimally invasive spinal surgery, is pleased to announce they’ve won a 2019 Orthopedics this Week Spine Technology Award for their new Integrated Navigation Tracking & Control System, Intracs®em. joimax® will be recognized with the award during the annual North American Spine Society Meeting (NASS), taking place September 25-28 in Chicago.

joimax® is heavily involved in this year’s NASS program. On Wednesday, September 25, they will host three stations at the new, hands-on, full-day course, NASS/Neurospine Endoscopic Spinal Surgery Symposium and Cadaver Workshop, co-sponsored by KOMISS. Moreover, joimax® will present the latest technologies at their booth, No. 3416, including Intracs®em, the first electromagnetic system for endoscopic spine applications. Earlier this year, Intracs®em received its CE mark and is already very successful within Europe and Asia. It is pending FDA clearance; expected before year end.

joimax® is also presenting ESPINEA®, Endoscopic Spine Academy, with its complete joimax® endoscopic education curriculum, which will play a crucial role in educating the next generation of endoscopic spine surgeons. Additional highlights in the booth will be the 4K Endoscopic tower and its optimal solution for endoscopic spinal surgery, as well as the latest 3D-printed EndoLIF® Cage family, consisting of the EndoLIF® O/On-Cage, DoubleWedge-Cage and Delta- Cage.

Wolfgang Ries, joimax® CEO and Founder states, “We are excited about the most recent developments within the US market. We are experiencing a great movement towards joimax® procedures, such as TESSYS® and iLESSYS®, from academics as well as private institutions. With our recently established ESPINEA® and the support from societies such as NASS, we believe we are at the tipping point where joimax® endoscopic spine surgery will become the gold standard of treatment in the US market.”

joimax® starts the official sale of its EndoLIF® Delta and DoubleWedge cages. All three members of EndoLIF® family CE approved.

Karlsruhe, GER– July 15, 2019 –joimax®, the Germany-based market leader of technologies and training methods for full-endoscopic minimally-invasive spinal surgery, announces the official sales launch of its complete EndoLIF® family. EndoLIF® is an instrument set for endoscopic-assisted minimally invasive lumbar interbody fusion. As already announced and showcased at earlier events, the EndoLIF® product line consists of three members now: the well-known EndoLIF® O/On-Cage, the EndoLIF® Delta Cage, and the latest EndoLIF® Double Wedge Cage. The complete EndoLIF® product family is now CE-approved and fully available. Moreover, the EndoLIF® O/On-Cage is FDA-approved.

All EndoLIF® Implants are manufactured using a 3D printing process, which ensures an open diamond cell structure. The cages are safely implanted via the guide wire and are fillable with bone or bone substitute material. With their rough and porous surface, the implants guarantee optimal bone ingrowth, stability and finally fusion.

The EndoLIF® Cage family provides the right implant for every patient and is the perfect solution for endoscopic spinal fusion. With the gentle and atraumatic access via gradual tissue dilatation, muscles remain intact leaving important biomechanical structures in place after surgery.

Like with any endoscopic procedure compared to open surgery, all advantages for fusion are now given with the EndoLIF® program also. With one EndoLIF® Instrument Set all three cages of the EndoLIF® family can be implemented.

Dr. Florian Zentz, (Munich, GER) emphasizes “the extraordinarily high primary stability of the EndoLIF® DoubleWedge-Cage”. He continues enthusiastically: “After insertion the cage sits very firmly in the intervertebral disc space and adjusts the angulation up to 18 degrees, almost directly enabling an optimal lordosis correction.”

Dr. Ralf Wagner, (Frankfurt, GER) is also convinced of the obvious advantages: “The Delta Cage is ideal for the posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) offering a gentle posterior alternative, especially at level L5-S1 with its large interlaminar window.
