ATEC Advances Lateral Surgery With Launch of Expandable Technology
CARLSBAD, Calif.– (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 16, 2023 — Alphatec Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATEC), a provider of innovative solutions dedicated to revolutionizing the approach to spine surgery, announced today that the Company’s commitment to advancing lateral surgery will be prominent at the 2023 NASS Annual Meeting. The Company will introduce the Calibrate LTXTM lateral expandable implant system, technology designed to better achieve alignment goals with precise lordosis control and disc height restoration.
“ATEC is uniquely dedicated to improving lateral surgery,” said Pat Miles, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The release of Calibrate LTX elevates our lateral procedural thesis by better enabling surgeons to achieve the most elusive goal of surgery: alignment. When it comes to alignment, EOS is the best imaging tool to determine it, PTPTM is the best lateral procedure to achieve it and Calibrate LTX is the expandable implant system that best drives it. At NASS, we will demonstrate how to apply PTP in increasingly complex procedures and how to employ LTPTM to address L3 through S1, the most commonly treated levels in spine. Our path to becoming the standard bearer in lateral surgery will be apparent.”
Anthony Kwon, M.D., Orthopedic Spine Surgeon at OrthoCarolina and Atrium Medical Center in Charlotte, NC, added, “The Calibrate LTX expandable lateral system seamlessly integrates with ATEC’s entire lateral platform. The simplicity and ease of insertion of the implant is unique compared to the over-engineering that plagues other expandable systems. Enhanced visibility, powerful expansion and ease of back-filling make LTX the ideal expandable interbody solution.”

Calibrate LTX will be a feature of a technology-focused meeting for investors on October 18, 2023, from 7:30am to 9:00am PT at the JW Marriott Los Angeles.
