The coflex device is the FIRST AND ONLY posterior lumbar motion preservation solution with Level I evidence (the highest possible level of clinical data) from two prospective randomized studies against two treatment optionsThere are many peer-reviewed publications on the coflex device, making it one of the most studied lumbar spinal devices on the market. The coflex device has been implanted in more than 175,000 patients in over 60 countries.

This makes the coflex device the only posterior lumbar motion preservation solution with proven long-term outcomes for durable pain relief and stability.
