Doctors test devices to treat failing discs in lower spine
Dr. Jim Youssef, left, and Dr. Douglas Orndorff of Durango Orthopedic Associates/Spine Colorado have been chosen to participate in nationwide clinical trials of two new devices to treat lower spine problems.
The XL TDR is a metallic replica of a disc that is inserted between vertebrae when a disc has degenerated.
The Superion Interspinous Spacer is implanted into the spine and then cranked open like a vehicle jack to separate vertebrae.
Dr. Jim Youssef looks over X-rays with Amy Moreno on Sept. 2 at Durango Orthopedic Associates/Spine Colorado. Moreno had the XL TDR, which is a metallic replica of a disc, implanted in her spine to replace a failing disc in her lower back.
