"As a global medical device company, we look forward to partnering
with AANS to further superior outcomes and patient safety with our
newest game changing products," said Alex Lukianov, Chairman and CEO
of NuVasive. "As an XLIF(R) patient myself, I know firsthand the
safety concerns of most patients about to be treated with invasive
surgery. Since NuVasive has redefined spine surgery with a
revolutionary minimally disruptive approach, patients no longer have
to undergo invasive spine procedures. Patients are often able to walk
the same day of surgery, experience less blood loss, and spend less
time in the hospital which helps patient's recover quickly and
safely. We are very excited to participate at AANS to showcase XLIF
and our entire portfolio of solutions for the spine."

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 products to aid in the spinal fusion process. 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 levels supported by a culture of
Absolute Responsiveness(R).
