Dr. Henry Ruiz 1st surgeon in Alabama to use Expanding Orthopedics' FLXfit cage — 3 points


Henry Ruiz, MD, of Gadsden (Ala.) Regional Medical Center, became the first surgeon in the state to use Israel-based Expanding Orthopedics' FLXfit 3-D Expandable Cage, according to Yahoo! Finance.

Here are three points:


1. Dr. Ruiz uses the device for transforaminal lumbar interbody fusions.


2. The FLXfit features a large surface area and an articulation mechanism which allows surgeons to place the cage in the front of the disc space to expand.


3. Dr. Ruiz commented expandable cages offer a particular benefit for patients undergoing minimally invasive surgery.
