Welcome to the New Standard of Care in Spinal Disease Treatment
Inspired Spine’s revolutionary minimally invasive spinal surgery technology can change your practice – and the lives of your patients – for the better. Innovation, research and over 500 surgeries have yielded statistically significant improvements in all parameters over current spinal fusion standards of care.
Inspired Spine Advanced Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgeries
OLLIF: Oblique Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion
Oblique Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (OLLIF) is an advanced MI fusion of the lumbar spine that is safe, effective and technically less demanding than comparable procedures. It does not require direct visualization and, unlike other MI fusions, it does not require facetectomy or laminectomy.
In OLLIF the disc space is approached through Kambin’s triangle guided by electrophysiological monitoring and biplanar fluoroscopic imaging. Discectomy is performed through a 10mm working tube. After discectomy, the disc space is packed with tricalcium phosphate soaked in autologous bone marrow aspirate and the cage is inserted. OLLIF is complemented with MIS pedicle screw fixation.
OLLIF and our other fluoroscopic minimally invasive spinal procedures enable patients to get back to living their lives faster and sustain an exceptional quality of life. (See their stories)
MIS-DTIF: Direct Thoracic Interbody Fusion
The Inspired Spine Direct Thoracic Interbody Fusion (MIS-DTIF) is the world’s only minimally invasive thoracic fusion that does not require dissection or disruption of the ribs and rib anatomy. Other widely performed thoracic fusion procedures require patients to undergo permanent removal of at least one rib.
MIS-DLIF: Direct Lateral Interbody Fusion
Together with the MIS-DLIF, a modified version of the OLLIF that can be applied to L5-S1 fusions, the Inspired Spine family of fluoroscopic MIS surgeries makes Levels T6 to S1 accessible for effective MI fusion.
Bring Life-Changing Surgery to More Patients Who Need It
Our OLLIF surgery can optimally be performed in 45 minutes with only 10% of the blood loss of a traditional TLIF fusion.
These two key aspects have broadened the population with an acceptable surgical risk profile, providing historically challenging cases with an opportunity to live free of pain. Due to the innovative Inspired Spine approach, patients with a high body mass index (BMI), old age, or a high ASA score can now be safely and effectively treated.
Furthermore, OLLIF can be adapted to correct spinal deformities like Adult Degenerative Scoliosis (ADS), further expanding the potential patient population for MI fusion treatment.
The Inspired Spine OLLIF and family of advanced minimally invasive spinal procedures have the potential to improve clinical outcomes relative to the current surgical standard of care for many of the indications that result in chronic back pain, including: Degenerative Disc Disease, Herniated Discs, Spondylolisthesis and Spinal Stenosis.

Inspired Spine Surgeon Training Program
Inspired Spine is building a network of IS Certified Surgeons to expand access to our advanced MIS fluoroscopic spinal procedures around the world. The OLLIF is a straightforward procedure without a steep learning curve for the surgeon.
IS Surgeon candidates complete a physician onboarding and certification program structured to ensure surgeon proficiency and patient safety. Our program provides surgical procedure training with a combination of Didactic and Lab Sessions, Case Observation and Soft Transition Case Assist for approximately 10 – 30 cases. We offer continuous assistance with patient selection, pre- and post-operative clinical questions and outcome documentation.
