First surgery at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center


Z-Medical is pleased to announce the first surgery at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center using the MIS Z-Pedicle Screw System.

This month Grant A. Skidmore, MD, a neurosurgeon from Tidewater Virginia performed his first implantation of the Z-Medical, MIS Z-Pedicle Screw System, at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center. “The system offers unique advantages that facilitated more accurate placement of the screws and easier assembly of the device,” said Dr. Skidmore.

First Surgery

While Dr. Skidmore utilized the system in an open lumbar 4-5 procedure, he sees the tremendous value of using the system in MIS fracture cases”.

Jim Talbert, US Distributor at Z-Medical GmbH + Co. KG, remarked on the advantages and benefits of the MIS Z-Pedicle Screw System: “The MIS Z-Pedicle Screw System was designed for a straight forward approach and to reduce surgical steps in a minimally-invasive or open trauma or spondylolisthesis procedure. The preloaded set-screw makes it faster and easier with fewer problems (no cross-threading or tulip splay). The multifunctional system and innovative implant design reduces the OR time, minimizes potential risks, and offers a wide range of treatment options.

About the MIS Z-Pedicle Screw System

The MIS Z-Pedicle Screw System and the pre-sterilized implants offer surgeons an ideal solution for their indication specific needs. The innovative screw design with only one instrument tray enable them to efficiently and cost effectively address the most common pathologies. It was specifically designed for a minimally-invasive approach for less tissue disruption, blood loss and trauma but finds its application due its advantages also in open procedures. It is approved for Degenerative, Trauma, Tumor and Deformity application.

Alignment after surgical correction of spondylolisthesis, reduction in fracture- and the derotation in scoliosis treatments are achieved directly with the lengthening shaft, pre-assembled set-screw, the long reduction thread and the especially designed uniplanar fracture- and deformity screws.
