KICVentures announced today the issuance of a patent for SpineFrontier’s laminoplasty device LESplasty. The patent was issued on March 26th, 2019 and provides an innovative solution to posterior cervical decompression.

“Less Exposure Surgery (LES®) is based on a new philosophy of performing surgery,” says Professor Kingsley R. Chin, M.D, Founder of LES. “All surgeries begin with maximal exposure but evolve to less exposure. LES® is less invasive than MIS. By developing improved technologies and techniques tailored to pinpointing a problem and fixing it without collateral damage, LES® minimizes tissue disruption.”
