Spinal conditions leave millions of people in pain and struggling to cope on a daily basis. Degenerative disc disease, spinal tumors and trauma are just a few causes of serious spinal issues. Many people have opted for several treatments with less than stellar outcomes.

Now, there is a new treatment for spinal conditions and Summa Pain Care is ready to bring this cutting edge technology to any patient that needs assistance. This new technology is called the Stabilink Spinal Fixation system. It is an advanced technique that can offer stability and support to the spine like never before. Quality of life can be improved alongside pain reduction and quicker than normal recovery times. No matter if it’s a chronic or acute injury, this technology can handle it all. Let’s dive into what makes the Stabilink Spinal Fixation System a top choice for spinal care.

Introduction to Stabilink: Spinal Fixation System

Spinal fixation systems have been used for almost a hundred years with several groundbreaking advances taking place for the past few decades. These systems are vitally important for stabilizing the spine after surgery or a traumatic event, pain relief, correcting deformities, improving mobility, preventing further injury and so much more.

Some of the most common types of fixation systems used include pedicle screw systems, rods, plates, dynamic stabilization systems, hooks and wires and more.

Stabilink is in the interbody fusion device category of spinal fixation systems. This means it provides adequate support of the spine while still maintaining some flexibility. It has been specifically designed to be minimally invasive in treating lumbar spine complications.

The best part is that the procedure to use Stabilink is an outpatient procedure. When done properly, small implants are placed on the spinal cord to stabilize and manage the spine from pressure and damage. It can aid in pain relief and healing.

Key Features of the Stabilink System

Durability and safety were among the top concerns when the Stabilink system was created. In its design, biocompatible materials like titanium and PEEK or polyetheretherketone are used. PEEK is a polymer that is used due to its flexibility and compatibility with imaging techniques.

What sets Stabilink apart from other spinal fusion systems is its innovative design. The system has modular components that can fit the unique structure and anatomy of each patient. It also has self-locking mechanisms that aid in keeping the device securely in place. Additionally, Stabilink has a low profile design that minimizes injury or discomfort to the surrounding tissues. Lastly, it has enhanced surface technology that promotes bone growth which is essential for a successful spinal fusion.

Stabilink is a spinal fusion system that is also versatile in the spinal conditions of which it can assist in healing and recovery. These conditions include:

Degenerative Disc Disease: When discs begin to degrade, Stabilink can offer stability and support to the affected areas.

Spondylolisthesis: When vertebrae slip out of place, this system can help realign and stabilize the area.

Spinal Stenosis: When the spinal canal has narrowed, this system can relieve pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.

Traumatic Spinal Injuries: When a fracture or other injury occurs, Stabilink can support and facilitate proper healing.

Spinal Deformities: For conditions such as Scoliosis and Kyphosis, Stabilink can aid in correcting proper spinal alignment.

Stabilink is in a league of its own with high-quality materials, a distinctive design and multi-faceted use for various conditions and treatments. It stands out as a reliable solution for many patients.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Using Stabilink

While the Stabilink procedure has provided many benefits to patients across the board, it is not without a few drawbacks. To begin with, the benefits of the procedure are very exciting. The procedure itself is quick and can be done in an outpatient appointment. Furthermore, it provides stability, can relieve chronic pain, is minimally invasive, and can increase a patient’s functionality.

There are drawbacks as well. The list includes things like the possibility of loss of motion, risk of infection, risk of blood clots, and may require further surgery if the desired outcome is not reached These benefits and drawbacks are important to discuss with your doctor.
