5/1/2006 1:54:24 PM

SALT LAKE CITY, May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Utah-based spinal implant company Innovasis is collaborating with Eagle Condor Humanitarian to promote a medical expedition to Peru for six spinal surgeons who will spend three days at Lima Neurological Hospital, as well as providing other humanitarian services in Lima and Cuzco.

Surgeons leave June 3 as part of this semi-annual medical expedition and perform surgeries on youth and adults. These surgeons bring with them specific expertise and knowledge often unavailable in Peru. Innovasis is providing funding, materials and equipment for all spinal expeditions.

"Innovasis is honored to be working with Eagle Condor Humanitarian," stated Martin Crous, Ph.D., vice president of sales & marketing for Innovasis. "Both organizations are committed to enhancing the lives of individuals and families in Peru, as well as other underdeveloped communities around the world. We believe strongly in making a meaningful, positive impact on society. We also welcome and pursue partnerships with spinal surgeons who can offer the latest in techniques and skill in spine surgery to take part in this rewarding and unique opportunity," Dr. Crous said.

Eagle Condor has six expeditions planned this year, including dental and youth expeditions. Participants in the expeditions include groups of 15-40 volunteers who travel to Peru at their own expense, to train, build, provide medical assistance and implement programs.

Eagle Condor Humanitarian is a Utah non-profit organization headquartered in Salt Lake City. Founded in 2003, it works with Asociacion ANDES ECH in Chiclayo Peru. Eagle Condor has three objectives:

* Creating sustainable hope and dignity within people of lesser developed areas. * Provide a rich and predictable real life humanitarian experience for adults, youth & families. * Provide a perpetuating and respected organization where members and donors are confident contributions are making a difference.

Innovasis offers spinal product implants and instruments that address major pathologies and focus areas of traditional spinal surgery, including deformities, degenerative conditions, trauma and tumors, all of which can result in severe back pain and sometimes paralysis. Spinal implants are aimed at restoring mechanical and neurological function by readjusting vertebral positioning until bone fusion occurs. Founded in 2002, Innovasis is committed to providing surgeons with training, support and excellent customer service.
