Innovative Surgical Designs is focused on spine technologies.
ISD was founded to address a shortcoming in the available treatment options for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) patients. According to a publication of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons AAOS, there are 2.4 million U.S. patients suffering from spinal stenosis. This number is expected to double by 2021. Only 15% of these patients respond to nonoperative care and thus the majority will require surgical intervention to achieve symptomatic relief.
ISD’s Altum® system is the only treatment method capable of decompressing nerve tissue without removing normal bone, muscle or tendon tissue. Peer reviewed published data support the significant clinical and economic benefits of Altum®. Patient's need a better solution for lumbar stenosis...ISD is working to bring Altum® to patients in need.
