ALLENDALE, N.J., March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Stryker announced today the
launch of the ES2 Spinal System. The ES2 system is built on Stryker's trusted
Xia 3 pedicle screw technology, which has been used in approximately 500,000
cases worldwide. ES2's streamlined implant and instrument design allows for
one-step, percutaneous placement of the screw and retractor, providing
surgeons with the efficiency, simplicity and security they desire during
minimally invasive procedures.

Dr. Jeffrey Roh, Orthopedic Surgeon and Director of the Seattle Minimally
Invasive Spine Center in Seattle, Washington, commented that, "the ES2 implant
has built-in reduction capabilities, integrated blades and an anatomically
designed thread pattern that has given me a well-rounded system to use in MIS
cases. With ES2, I am confident that my patients are receiving the highest
quality products that allow me to provide excellent outcomes both during and
after their surgery."

This release marks yet another technology to further strengthen Stryker's
LITe™ (Less Invasive Technologies) platform of thirteen MIS products which are

platform which includes CD3, the only FDA cleared cordless power drill,"
commented Spencer Stiles, President of Stryker Spine. The system is also
compatible with Stryker Navigation's SpineMap3D_2.0 software and spine
