Mission Statement

We deliver revolutionary medical devices that provide value to patients, physicians and payers.


Spinal Simplicity, LLC was founded in 2008 by Dr. Harold Hess, a practicing neurosurgeon, and Todd Moseley, an entrepreneur with over 30 years’ experience in orthopedics. The company began focusing on minimally invasive Lateral Approach lumbar fusion technology. In May 2011, Spinal Simplicity received CE approval for its initial product, the Minuteman, as well as ISO 13485 certification for its quality management system. In January 2015, FDA 510(k) clearance was granted for the Minuteman G3 device and February of 2015 received CE approval. This is a significant milestone that allows Spinal Simplicity to compete in the fast-growing, minimally invasive spine market. Future product offerings include active compression plating technology currently in development to treat cervical conditions of the spine – as well as fractures, fusion and osteotomies of the extremities.
