1st cases done with Aurora Spine's cervical plate

Carly Behm -  

Sebastian Koga, MD, a neurosurgeon in Covington, La., completed the first cases with Aurora Spine's Apollo cervical plate.

The procedures were anterior cervical discectomy and fusions, according to a Jan. 25 news release. Apollo comes with streamlined instrumentation and is designed to preserve a patient's skeletal and muscle tissue.

"I performed three consecutive cases in one day and found the ergonomics, workflow and implants to be excellent," Dr. Koga said in the news release. "I found the plate lordosis, thickness and sizing to be anatomically perfect. A major improvement is the control of screw direction in high-angled screws."
