Dante Leven, DO, of Malden, Mass.-based Total Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, implanted Malden-based SpineFrontier's A-CIFT Solofuse-P during an anterior cervical discectomy.

Here are five highlights:


1. Dr. Leven performed the procedure on Jan. 11, 2017, at Long Island Jewish, Valley Stream (N.Y.) Medical Center.


2. The patient suffered a foraminal disc herniation at C4-5 and C5-6, disc height loss and kyphosis.


3. Dr. Leven commented that the implant offers a "minimally invasive surgical technique to fuse the cervical spine." The technology features a larger graft window, which enhances graft volume.


4. The A-CIFT Solofuse-P is a less exposure surgery technology intended for outpatient surgery.


5. Dr. Leven completed his spine surgery fellowship at New York City-based Mount Sinai Hospital. He specializes in minimally invasive surgery.
