Dr. Sameer Mathur and Dr. Nael Shanti, Cary Orthopaedics’ minimally invasive spine care experts, recently received FDA approval for designing the new Avance™ Minimally Invasive Pedicle Screw System, which will be produced by Baxano Surgical, Inc. – a medical device company focused on designing, developing and marketing minimally invasive products to treat degenerative conditions of the lumbar spine.

This innovative system, which may be used as an adjunct to fusion in numerous degenerative and complex spinal pathologies, provides a quick and easy-to-use, minimally invasive pedicle screw system that addresses single, complex and multi-level spinal pathologies with minimal tissue disruption and trauma.

“The Avance system provides a truly percutaneous approach designed to minimize tissue trauma and eliminate additional rod insertion incision,” stated Sameer Mathur, M.D.

“The scientific engineering used to design Avance lowers the construct’s overall profile, increases intraoperative flexibility and enhances lock down security,” stated Nael Shanti, M.D.
