Nima Salari, MD, was reportedly the first spine surgeon to implant the new 12-degree hyperlordotic dualX interbody cage after it was launched by Amplify Surgical.

Amplify's latest implant is a transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion device designed to improve sagittal balance restoration capabilities.

"For this TLIF procedure, I needed to fuse L5/S1 posteriorly due to anterior vascular anomalies," Dr. Salari said in a Dec. 8 news release. "The broad footprint and 12 degrees of lordosis provided a similar advantage to an ALIF through a posterior approach."

Dr. Salari practices with Disc Desert Institute for Spine Care, a Phoenix based group with five locations in Arizona, according to its website. 

The first procedure with the Amplify cage was performed at Honor Shea Health in Phoenix.
