INTERBODY FUSION SYSTEM
ENDPLATE-CONFORMING1 EXPANDABLE INTERBODY
The FlareHawk® Interbody Fusion System utilizes Adaptive Geometry™ to expand simultaneously in width, height, and lordosis after traversing the neural corridor with a small profile. Once expanded, the conformable implant is designed to reduce subsidence, restore foraminal height, and reestablish sagittal balance from a posterior approach.
A 17mm wide implant can be placed with the retraction required for an 11mm implant. That’s a 55% footprint increase with no additional retraction.
FlareHawk provides multiple insertion profile and footprint options to help accommodate patient and level-specific neural corridors.
The multi-material construct of the cage conforms to each patient’s endplate topography when expanded.

INDICATIONS FOR USE/INTENDED USE
The FlareHawk Interbody Fusion System is indicated for spinal intervertebral body fusion with autogenous bone graft and/or allogeneic bone graft composed of cancellous and/or corticocancellous bone in skeletally mature individuals with degenerative disc disease (DDD) at one or two contiguous levels from L2 to S1, following discectomy. DDD is defined as discogenic back pain with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies. These patients should have at least six (6) months of non-operative treatment. Additionally, these patients may have up to Grade 1 spondylolisthesis or retrolisthesis at the involved level(s). FlareHawk system spacers are intended to be used with supplemental fixation instrumentation, which has been cleared for use in the lumbar spine.
Refer to the FlareHawk Interbody Fusion System Instructions for Use for full prescribing information.
