Lumiere™ Access Systems

: :Lumiere™ Access Systems

The Lumiere™ Access Systems are an expandable, fiber-optic illuminated tissue retractors that enable surgeons to transition from open surgery to minimally invasive surgery (MIS). These products are based on Orthozon's patented “spinning blade” design, which employs rotational motion to safely split tissue and create a fully enclosed portal through which surgeons can perform deep-access procedures. The current adaptations of this platform, Lumiere-D and Lumiere-F , are FDA-registered and can be used to split posterior muscle for lumbar spine procedures. To-date, over six hundred patients have been successfully treated with these products.

A decade of clinical data on minimally invasive surgery overwhelmingly supports that patients undergoing treatment through MIS have significantly better outcomes than patients undergoing treatment through open surgery. The reported benefits include:
• Reduced surgical duration
• Lower chance of infection
• Limited blood loss and tissue trauma
• Faster recovery times
• Less post-operative medication usage
• Cost-savings for surgeons, hospitals, insurers, patients, and outpatient surgery centers

  • The Lumiere™-D product is used for tissue splitting procedures where the incision size is typically <1 in. The top inner diameter is 18mm and the bottom inner diameter is 24mm.
  • The Lumiere™-F product is used for tissue splitting procedures where the incision size is typically <2 in. The top inner diameter is 24mm and the bottom inner diameter is 32mm
  • All product variations are available in 55mm, 75mm, and 95mm heights
  • All product variations are sterile-packed with a 5-year shelf life
  • The system also includes reusable equipment (please contact for more information)

  • Offers numerous clinical advantages over competitors by increasing comfort and flexibility for both advanced and transitioning MIS surgeons
  • Less tissue trauama and blood loss due to patented muscle-splitting motion rather than muscle-cutting
  • Reduced surgical duration due to significantly improved access and visualization
  • Faster recovery with minimal risk of infection
