Inspired Spine Advanced Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgeries

OLLIF: Oblique Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion

Oblique Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (OLLIF) is an advanced MI fusion of the lumbar spine that is safe, effective and technically less demanding than comparable procedures. It does not require direct visualization and, unlike other MI fusions, it does not require facetectomy or laminectomy.

In OLLIF the disc space is approached through Kambin’s triangle guided by electrophysiological monitoring and biplanar fluoroscopic imaging. Discectomy is performed through a 10mm working tube. After discectomy, the disc space is packed with tricalcium phosphate soaked in autologous bone marrow aspirate and the cage is inserted. OLLIF is complemented with MIS pedicle screw fixation.

OLLIF and our other fluoroscopic minimally invasive spinal procedures enable patients to get back to living their lives faster and sustain an exceptional quality of life. (See their stories)

Two critical advantages of the OLLIF procedure include: substantially shorter operating durations along with a significant (90%) reduction in blood loss.

MIS-DTIF: Direct Thoracic Interbody Fusion

The Inspired Spine Direct Thoracic Interbody Fusion (MIS-DTIF) is the world’s only minimally invasive thoracic fusion that does not require dissection or disruption of the ribs and rib anatomy. Other widely performed thoracic fusion procedures require patients to undergo permanent removal of at least one rib.

MIS-DLIF: Direct Lateral Interbody Fusion

Together with the MIS-DLIF, a modified version of the OLLIF that can be applied to L5-S1 fusions, the Inspired Spine family of fluoroscopic MIS surgeries makes Levels T6 to S1 accessible for effective MI fusion.

Bring Life-Changing Surgery to More Patients Who Need It

Our OLLIF surgery can optimally be performed in 45 minutes with only 10% of the blood loss of a traditional TLIF fusion.

These two key aspects have broadened the population with an acceptable surgical risk profile, providing historically challenging cases with an opportunity to live free of pain. Due to the innovative Inspired Spine approach, patients with a high body mass index (BMI), old age, or a high ASA score can now be safely and effectively treated.

Furthermore, OLLIF can be adapted to correct spinal deformities like Adult Degenerative Scoliosis (ADS), further expanding the potential patient population for MI fusion treatment.

The Inspired Spine OLLIF and family of advanced minimally invasive spinal procedures have the potential to improve clinical outcomes relative to the current surgical standard of care for many of the indications that result in chronic back pain, including: Degenerative Disc Disease, Herniated Discs, Spondylolisthesis and Spinal Stenosis.
