Hopkinton, MA(October 13, 2008) – Facet Solutions, Inc. today announced the completion of 6 month follow-up on 20 patients from its US IDE Pilot Study. The results show a 78% reduction in Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) scores, and an 80% reduction in Visual Analog Scores (VAS) for symptomatic leg pain. Geoff Pardo, President & CEO for Facet Solutions, added, “We are very pleased with these early results, which thus far not only demonstrate significant pain relief but the safety of an anatomic and unconstrained design.”
Dr. John Regan, of St. Johns Hospital in Santa Monica, CA, will be presenting the results from Facet Solutions’ US Pilot Study at 11:17am on Tuesday, October 14th at the NASS Pre-Meeting Course in Toronto, Ontario.
