Product Reviews

CREO Converts Pedicle Screw Business:

Dr. G is a newly converted surgeon to Globus. For his first CREO case, he did an L2-L5 posterior fusion and the case went FLAWLESS! He loved the system. The new screwdrivers and reducers all worked fantastic! Now that he has the taste of CREO he wants no other system. We have eight lumbar fusions scheduled in the next two weeks. This is very exciting for our territory and a job well done to the guys inside for such a well-designed system!!

CREO AMP Converts Pedicle Screw Business:

Dr. S, neurosurgeon, has been using RISE/CALIBER for 50% of his PLIF cases over the last year, but has never given us an opportunity on his pedicle screw business. Dr S. used CREO AMP in the lab during a home office visit, and was very impressed with its streamlined instrumentation, and the versatility of the system. Dr. S. inserted all the screws and left them extremely proud and then did a decompression/PLIF and sinks the screws at the end. With CREO AMP he saw the benefit of being able to fully seat his screws, achieve a more comprehensive decortication, and distract without needing a rod in place. He did his first CREO AMP case 1.5 months after our visit and he absolutely loves the system. It’s very efficient and easy to use. The case went very smoothly and everyone was impressed. CREO AMP really takes the saying “a screw is a screw” and proves it wrong.
