Stryker Announces the Launch of the ES2™ Spinal System



3/15/2013 10:08:18 AM

ALLENDALE, N.J., March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Stryker announced today the launch of the ES2 Spinal System. The ES2 system is built on Stryker's trusted Xia 3 pedicle screw technology, which has been used in approximately 500,000 cases worldwide. ES2's streamlined implant and instrument design allows for one-step, percutaneous placement of the screw and retractor, providing surgeons with the efficiency, simplicity and security they desire during minimally invasive procedures.

Dr. Jeffrey Roh, Orthopedic Surgeon and Director of the Seattle Minimally Invasive Spine Center in Seattle, Washington, commented that, "the ES2 implant has built-in reduction capabilities, integrated blades and an anatomically designed thread pattern that has given me a well-rounded system to use in MIS cases. With ES2, I am confident that my patients are receiving the highest quality products that allow me to provide excellent outcomes both during and after their surgery."

This release marks yet another technology to further strengthen Stryker's LITe (Less Invasive Technologies) platform of thirteen MIS products which are segmented into four key areas including:

  • Access Systems: LITe Decompression Tubes, Phantom and Luxor Retractors
  • Disc Preparation: Reliance LITe and Reliance Total PLIF
  • Interbody Insertion: AVS ARIA, AVS Navigator, AVS TL, AVS PL and AVS UniLIF
  • Fixation Solutions: Techtonix, Mantis and Mantis Redux

"The ES2 Spinal System is an exciting addition to our ever-growing portfolio of less invasive technologies and a great compliment to Stryker's power platform which includes CD3, the only FDA cleared cordless power drill," commented Spencer Stiles, President of Stryker Spine. The system is also compatible with Stryker Navigation's SpineMap3D_2.0 software and spine navigation instruments.
