The Phoenix MIS screw body has a unique implant design for percutaneous and mini-open approaches to spinal fixation. The MIS body has a built-in instruments tower which can be removed after assembly of the implant construct. The design permits a smaller working diameter and thereby helps reduce the surgical incision.

The Phoenix Posterior Pedicle Screw System is used for posterior, non-cervical pedicle fixation. Pedicle screw fixation is limited to skeletally mature patients. It is used as an adjunct to fusion using autograft or allograft. The device is indicated for all of the following regardless of the intended uses:

  1. Degenerative disc disease (defined as discogenic back pain with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies)
  2. Spondylolisthesis
  3. Trauma (i.e., fracture or dislocation)
  4. Spinal stenosis
  5. Deformities or curvatures (i.e., scoliosis, kyphosis, and/or lordosis)
  6. Tumor
  7. Pseudoarthrosis
  8. Failed previous fusion
