Since its launch in October 2017, the Lateral Single-Position solution is fully integrated into our portfolio, and we have received extremely positive feedback from early adopters who are seeing great results as they take XLIF® to the next level to create a better and more streamlined surgical experience for both surgeon and patient.”
