Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) February 23, 2009 -- VG Innovations, Inc (VGI), announced today that its revolutionary VerteLoc™ Minimally Invasive Spine Stabilization system has now been implanted in more than 230 patients across the United States.

VerteLoc™ is designed to address minor spinal instabilities by effectively stabilizing the spinal facets, which are multi-directional joints of the spinal column. By addressing these indications earlier in the continuum of spine care, it may serve to reduce or eliminate back pain caused by the facet joints.

"The interest from surgeons continues to grow on a weekly basis," stated VGI's President and CEO, Dan Grayson. "VerteLoc™ is making a significant difference in the way surgeons address minor instabilities caused by various spinal diseases. Our unique patent pending allograft implant design, which combines two unique geometric shapes, and innovative directional instrumentation allows our surgeon users to replicate the VerteLoc™ procedure in a variety of surgical approaches."

A new interactive website has now been launched to support the demand for the VerteLoc™ system. "With the assistance of Zero Gravity Design Associates (ZGDA), we have created an informative and educational online tool that is unlike anything currently seen in this market space," Grayson added. "Jim Olsen, and his team at ZGDA, have assisted us to raise the bar with regard to the education and training of our current and potential surgeon users and distribution partners."

The VerteLoc™ Minimally Invasive Spine Stabilization System is designed to allow earlier intervention in the continuum of spinal care. The procedure should prolong or prevent more invasive spine procedures in indicated patients, which would provide significant benefits to the quality of life versus traditional methods of spinal fusion.
