About NuVasive 
NuVasive is a medical device company focused on developing minimally
disruptive surgical products and procedurally integrated solutions
for the spine. The Company is the 4th largest player in the $7.9
billion global spine market. 
NuVasive's principal product offering is based on its Maximum Access
Surgery, or MAS(R) platform. The MAS platform combines several
categories of solutions that collectively minimize soft tissue
disruption during spine surgery with maximum visualization and safe,
easy reproducibility for the surgeon: a proprietary software-driven
nerve avoidance system and intra-operative monitoring support;
MaXcess(R), a unique split-blade retractor system; a wide variety of
specialized implants; and several biologic fusion enhancers. MAS
significantly reduces surgery time and returns patients to activities
of daily living much faster than conventional approaches. Having
redefined spine surgery with the MAS platform's lateral approach,
known as eXtreme Lateral Interbody Fusion, or XLIF(R), NuVasive has
built an entire spine franchise. With over 75 products today spanning
lumbar, thoracic and cervical applications, the Company will continue
to expand and evolve its offering predicated on its R&D focus and
dedication to outstanding service levels supported by a culture of
Absolute Responsiveness(R).
