The coflex technology is a motion preserving, minimally invasive treatment for people with degenerative spinal stenosis. The device is used in conjunction with decompression treatment and provides stabilization to the spine and improves patient mobility. Previously, standard treatment included spinal fusion to limit movement.
Dr. Peloza is the Center for Spine Care medical director. Both he and Dr. Musacchio will be training surgeons across the country on the new device.
