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 $8.2
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 80 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 le
vels supported by a culture of Absolute Responsiveness(R).
