Title: MINIMALLY INVASIVE DEVICES, SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR TREATING THE SPINE
Abstract:
Devices and methods are provided for surgical retraction with a minimally invasive, maximum access surgical system. The surgical system can include anchor extensions that can be attached to bone screws. The bone screws can be inserted into a pedicle of a vertebral body. A retractor can be attached to anchor extensions connected to adjacent vertebrae on an operational side, and the retractor can be attached to anchor extensions connected to adjacent vertebrae on a contralateral side. The retractor can be used to distract the vertebral disc space between the adjacent vertebrae.
