The versatility of the Proficient® Posterior Cervical Spine System gives surgeons the confidence to treat standard degenerative or complex posterior cervical spine cases from a traditional open or muscle sparing approach.
Simplified Rod Placement
The proprietary tri-lobe screw design offers 120° of polyaxial angulation and features a freely-functioning tensioned tulip head. The extended tab screw option helps guide rod placement with 3 mm of reduction.
Designed for Complex Constructs
The comprehensive screw offering includes a 5.5 mm dual lead screw diameter that accepts 3.5 or 4.0 mm rod sizes to simplify longer complex constructs. The implant offering also includes low profile cross connectors and titanium and CoCr rod options.
Muscle Sparing Approach
The extended tab screw design, complimented by streamlined instrumentation, is designed to ease rod placement through a smaller incision than the standard open approach.
