One of the many techniques used by Dr. Goldstein is minimally invasive lumbar fusion utilizing the Sextant system. This video illustrates how the system is used surgically.
The CD HORIZON® SEXTANT™ Spinal System allows surgeons to deliver and apply screw and rod implants to the posterior aspect of the spine without the major muscle and tissue disruption encountered with traditional spinal fusion surgeries. This minimally invasive technique potentially allows significant patient benefits.
Spinal fusion is a process using bone graft to cause two opposing vertebrae to grow, or “weld,” together. To ensure position and rigid alignment while fusion takes place, surgeons apply spinal instruments, or implants, such as screws and rods to the spine. These implants are joined together to maintain spinal stability and are rarely removed. Spinal fusion and implants are used to restore stability to the spine, correct deformity and bridge spaces created by the removal of damaged spinal elements such as discs.
