It's a sunny, woodsy day in the spine world, so get those chainsaws out. This is Muscoloskeletal Man the musical voice of TSB. At the sound of the falling company, it's 9:30. There's a whole lotta wood out there, so let's get going. Where's Frank Booth when you need him? Unfortunately, he passed on to the afterlife.
Based on many rumors that have been circulating via e-mail, it seems that this may be the beginning of the end, or the last NASS for a few surrealistic companies that seem to be circling the drain. It seems that many start-up/early- growth stage companies are on a respirator ready for someone without enough of nerve to pull the plug on their suffering. So here are a list patients;
Applied Spine Technology: Posterior Dynamic Stabilization System, must we say anymore. How long can you keep riding Panjabi, at this point he may need back surgery.
Disc Motion Technology: Posterior Dynamic Stabilization System with Posterior Lumbar Disc, how much longer do you want to prolong the suffering? Get off the Amyl Nitrate.
U. S. Spine: I'm through attempting to make sense of anything that goes on at this company. Last time I saw Sendro and Blake they were Dancing with the Stars.
Impliant: I guess if someone could keep pouring money into this venture, it may have another six months. Hopefully if you resect enough of the posterior spine you will eventually eliminate pain.
Spine Wave: With any luck they may make it into 2011. The way these guys pay themselves, its a wonder there's any money left over for R&D. Crappy pedicle screw.
Eden Spine: Another Dynamic Stabilization System, no need to say anymore. In addition, we hear that an integral partner in bringing revenue is no longer at the Garden of Eden.
Yes fellow shoppers, there are deals to be had. It will depend on whether some of these people are willing to swallow their pride and ego's. The euphoric effect has had to wear off for many of these companies, its time to get back to reality, TSB wants to know what its readers think?
