AxioMed’s Discussion About the Future of Total Motion Restoration Opens Up Dialogue Between Spine Surgeons, Fellows & Industry Insiders at AAOS

AxioMed, LLC announced today that its event at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) Conference in Orlando, FL on Thursday March 3, 2016, fostered a lively discussion about the future of total motion restoration in spine. The event took place at the JW Marriott, and was attended by a variety of industry players, including established practicing surgeons, academics, fellows, and biologics and medical technology producers. Members of the press were also present.

“The diversity of attendees created a dynamic conversation informed by multiple perspectives from industry leaders, academics, surgeons and fellows.It opened up an important dialogue about the possibilities in total segment restoration,” said Jake Lubinski, President of AxioMed. "We hosted this event, because we believe those in the spine industry can learn a lot from the history of joint replacement, and that the time has come to move beyond fusion.”

Attendees engaged in debate on topics surrounding total motion preservation in the spine, discussing questions such as: “What’s been happening in the facet market? Is it feasible to replace the facets? Why not replace the facets? Is facet replacement an idea whose time has come?”

Dr. Jens Chapman, an Orthopedic Surgeon who practices at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute in Seattle, WA, and has been a proponent for sound evidence-based spine motion restoration procedures, participated in the discussion, raising important high-level and technical points about total facet replacement. He said, “In spine, we don’t have a good solution for total segment restoration yet. For facets we need to find a treatment that’s less bulky, yet effective and use it in patients where simple treatment, such as decompression surgery alone is not applicable."

The evening also featured a talk from Invibio about the benefits of HA PEEK and SpineFrontier's pioneering role in bringing it to market. Jake Lubinski, President of AxioMed, LLC spoke about facet replacement, a solution that Dr. Kingsley R. Chin patented in 2002, and how the AxioMed Freedom total disc replacement, together with facet replacement technology, represents a huge step forward for the industry.

Dr. Chin, an Orthopedic Surgeon and CEO of KICVentures, called the event, “a historic discussion among surgeons about the challenges and opportunities that these technologies present.” He said that it was important that a mix of fellows and more experienced surgeons were present. “It’s time for us surgeons who have been practicing for awhile to begin to hand this vision for the future of spine and total motion restoration off to fellows. That’s why we’re intentional in our partnership with fellows, because we believe the life of our vision for better spine solutions will eventually be sustained by them.”
