Neurosurgeon Navraj Heran, MD, performed the 100th surgical implantation of Aurora Spine's Zip Ultra minimally invasive interspinous device at False Creek Healthcare Centre in Vancouver, Canada.

Here are three things to know:

1. The Zip Ultra MIS interspinous fixation implant for spinal fusion includes the company's patented One-Step locking mechanism, which eliminates the use of a set screw, articulating spikes and various sizes to accommodate variations in patient anatomy.

2. The device is intended to provide a screwless fusion treatment as a pedicle screw alternative.

3. Dr. Heran is the chief of neurosurgery at False Creek Healthcare Centre and specializes in minimally invasive endovascular and spinal neurosurgery.
