MINNEAPOLIS, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- CoreSpine Technologies, LLC, an emerging spinal device company located in Minneapolis, announced today the appointment of John Sherman, M.D., Twin Cities Orthopedics, Edina, Minnesota, as Medical Director.

"We are delighted to welcome Dr. Sherman, an experienced and distinguished spine surgeon, to our growing executive team," said Christine Horton, Co- Founder of CoreSpine Technologies. "His commitment and successes in the emerging area of motion preservation are invaluable to the continued growth of the company."

"Dr. Sherman will play a key role in defining and developing CoreSpine Technologies' concepts. His presentation of test results next week at the Spine Arthroplasty Society's Annual Summit in Montreal will confirm the need for the company's novel technology," said Britt Norton, Co-Founder of CoreSpine Technologies.

Dr. John Sherman's experiences have led him to conclude that "one of the greatest challenges from a nucleus replacement perspective is to remove all of the nucleus pulposus, which allows for proper placement of a device." Dr. Sherman continued, "From a surgical perspective, CoreSpine is on-track with the development of a single-use device that is aimed at gently and effectively removing only the nucleus material."
