Spine Surgery

The incidence of spinal disorders has undergone a drastic increase in recent years and not only in industrial countries. "Back pain" has reached epidemic proportions and is causing major economic loss worldwide. Should surgery be necessary, access and operation sites must be kept as small as possible as the vertebral column constitutes a complex system. To function correctly, the spine relies on the balanced interplay of individual structures. Minimally invasive operative techniques with corresponding visualization ideally fulfill these requirements and optimally combine low traumatization with therapeutic efficiency.

KARL STORZ has, therefore, developed a wide range of products for spine surgery.

The product range comprises of dedicated, access-optimized telescopes and instruments for fully endoscopic procedures such as percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy, percutaneous endoscopic cervical discectomy and thoracoscopy. Furthermore, KARL STORZ offers instrument sets for endoscopically assisted, microsurgical and open procedures in spinal surgery. A high-speed motor system with a wide range of drill handpieces complements the portfolio.
