NuVasive(R) Solutions Named on Becker's ASC Review List of "100 Minimally Invasive Orthopedic & Spine Devices to Know"

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/18/14 -- NuVasive, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUVA), a medical device company focused on developing minimally disruptive surgical products and procedures for the spine, is pleased to announce that three of the Company's innovative products were named on the "100 Minimally Invasive Orthopedic & Spine Devices to Know" list. The list highlights devices and instruments used in minimally invasive orthopedic procedures, including knee, hip, shoulder, extremities, and spine surgery.

The list named recently-launched products including ALIF ACR™ (Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion - Anterior Column Realignment) and the XLIF Decade™ Plate as well as CoRoent® XL, all unique solutions designed to improve the patient and physician experience.

The hyperlordotic implants developed for the ALIF ACR procedure represent the Company's latest innovative advancement in an effort to improve sagittal plane deformity correction. The XLIF Decade Plate was designed to enable single approach lateral surgery. It incorporates the Company's ten years of XLIF® experience into a fixation system built upon the latest technologies, while offering uncompromised biomechanical characteristics. Lastly, the CoRoent XL implant has one of the largest footprints available to intervertebral spinal fusion patients.

"I am exceptionally pleased that several of our latest innovations have been recognized for innovating minimally invasive spine procedures," said Pat Miles, President of Global Products and Services. "NuVasive is driving the global conversion toward minimally invasive solutions in spine, and these products are great examples of how we are driving that shift; using innovation to change spine surgery. I can't wait to see how our unrivaled decade of experience pioneering the lateral solution will continue to improve patient outcomes in the years to come."
