“We have found this new and innovative Minuteman device very promising. We have had reasonable experience with inter-spinous distraction devices. This Minuteman has been very different due to its ability of forming a fusion. So far we haven’t had any device taken out for the reason of recurrent stenosis, unlike our past experience with other devices.
- Shorter surgical procedure time
- Minimal post-surgical pain
- Negligible blood loss
- Shorter hospital stays (ready to discharge in few hours)
- Effective pain reduction (as good or better in the interim period than the gold standard decompression)
- Effective on stenosis”
