DETROIT, July 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - Patients with herniated discs in the Detroit area now have expanded options for spine surgery. Dr. Nilesh Patel now offers herniated disc repair utilizing the AnchorKnotŪ Tissue Approximation Kit.

Microdiscectomy techniques offer surgical decompression of herniated

intervertebral discs with minimal trauma to the surgical site and reduced procedural time. The innovative AnchorKnotŪ Tissue Approximation Kit is used in such microdiscectomy techniques and is designed to close tissue defects that are associated with such procedures.

Dr. Nilesh Patel has been successfully treating patients using the AnchorKnot System at both the Michigan Spine Clinic and Michigan Orthopedic Specialists over the past year.

Dr. Patel has found that "Microdiscectomy surgery allows a patient to return to a more healthy state - faster and with less pain. The AnchorKnot device allows us to repair tissue defects, with an elegant device. This technology represents the next evolution in minimally invasive herniated disc repair. We are always looking to reduce the size of the tissue defect and we see it as a critical step towards our goal of and improving procedure outcomes."

Pat Van Gelder, General Manager, Global Commercialization of Anchor Orthopedics, comments that "Many physicians are now providing less aggressive herniated disc repair procedures, and as physicians learn about the AnchorKnot system, they see it as a necessary tool to effectively provide tissue closure. We developed the AnchorKnot system specifically to help in herniated disc repair procedures and we are looking forward to bringing this technology to more patients in Michigan by working with physicians such as Dr. Patel who are motivated to improve patient outcomes and reduce re-operations."
