Over 8 million people in the US suffer from degenerative spine conditions such as Spinal Stenosis Syndrome and Degenerative Disc Disease. The pinching of the spinal cord and nerve roots by misplaced tissue and abnormal bone growth into the spinal area causes them severe back and limb pain and deficiencies. When conservative treatments, medication and pain intervention cease to relieve pain and neurological deficiencies appear, surgery becomes the only viable option.
About 700,000 Spinal Decompression surgeries to decompress the spine by removing the tissue pinching the nerves are performed annually in the US. However, current surgical techniques (either open or MIS) present surgical access challenges and involve excessive removal of healthy tissue, causing more trauma to patients and increasing surgical cost.
Carevature Dreal™ is the first and only curved and powered, single-use decompression system efficient enough to handle bony tissue and precise enough to work safely around spinal anatomy. Dreal™’s unique design allows for easier and safer access, less trauma and less cost, resulting in better outcomes for both patients and the healthcare system.
*The Dreal™ is intended to cut bone in neurosurgical and spinal applications. Prior to use, the surgeon should refer to the product Instruction for Use (IFU) for complete indications, warnings, precautions and contraindications.
