NuVasive was recently recognized by SOLAS for its longstanding commitment and the first-ever Global Partner in its new partnership program this year.
NuVasive founded SOLAS in 2006 and proudly continues as a sponsor of the organization as an independent medical society. The mission of SOLAS is to advance minimally disruptive lateral access spine surgery techniques through clinical research, peer-to-peer education and membership initiatives.

During the Annual SOLAS Meeting, NuVasive will host an industry workshop, Leading. Expanding. Advancing. Lateral Solutions and Technologies in the Lumbar Spine, on May 18 from 12:30-2:00 p.m. led by surgeon faculty J. Alex Thomas, M.D., Brian Kwon, M.D. and Gregory M. Mundis, M.D. This is a non-CME, industry-sponsored educational program. For more information, visit the SOLAS Program.
“We are pleased to participate in the SOLAS partnership program and have the opportunity to host a workshop among this group of lateral-focused surgeons,” said Matt Link, executive vice president, strategy, technology and corporate development for NuVasive. “The research and education that has come out of SOLAS over the last 12 years has been invaluable in the clinical advancement of the lateral approach. As SOLAS continues to build on their strong academic, educational and scientific foundation, it is great to see other companies recognize the importance of this organization and join us as partners to help SOLAS further its mission.”
