TranS1 Emerges from Bankruptcy with Lead Product AxiaLIF

Published: Nov 17, 2015

Spinal fusion is a complex procedure that requires a surgeon to navigate through muscle, nerves, and organs before reaching bone. TranS1, a Raleigh, NC, medical device company, developed an alternative: a minimally invasive medical device that can fuse the lowest spinal joint in less time, at less cost, and with faster patient recovery.

TranS1, named for the S1 segment of the spine that the company’s AxiaLIF device targets, spent 15 years trying to turn its new approach to spinal fusion into a commercially successful product. But the financial obstacles proved to be too much. The company, renamed Baxano Surgical, filed for bankruptcy a year ago, leaving the future of its device in limbo.
