The TOPS™ System by Premia Spine is a mechanical implant device designed to offer better motion and stability for patients suffering with spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis, offering a greater range of movement compared to Spinal Fusion technology. The unique design of the TOPS™ System allows for motion in all directions for patients including flexion, extension, lateral bending, and axial rotation. Another great feature is that the system also blocks sheer forces, which is something that can’t be achieved with a typical decompression-only procedure.
There are three major benefits from using the TOPS™ System as a treatment of spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis and other facet joint diseases:
- During the procedure, the lumbar spine is stabilised and gains a controlled range of movement.
- After surgery, patients will be able to enjoy normal everyday activities by regaining the ability to bend, flex and walk.
- Once surgery is complete, patients will experience immediate and sustained pain relief according to research.
