AUDUBON, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Globus Medical, Inc. (NYSE: GMED), a leading spinal implant manufacturer, today announced it will be showcasing several new products at the North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting, being held October 24-26 in Dallas, Texas, at their exhibit Booth #1717. The SECURE®-C is a motion-sparing technology designed as an alternative to fusion. Its innovative design allows for controlled translation in flexion-extension which was confirmed by clinical findings and is the only device on the market with a lordotic option. At 24 months post-operative, the 380 patient study showed statistical superiority over the control, anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF), in overall success, rate of surgical intervention, and patient satisfaction. In addition, SECURE®-C patients had a lower rate of adjacent level surgery compared to ACDF.
