The word Providence is defined as a manifestation of divine care, hopefully Providence Medical Technologies will direct their universe and the affairs of spine patients in the future with wise benevolence. Some of you are wondering who is PMT, not to be mistaken for DMT, and what is it that they are hawking?
PMT is a privately held company developing percutaneous spinal therapies. If you are interested in learning more please log onto http://www.providencemt.com. No TSB does not have any vested interest in this product, nor do we know any of these individuals personally. What Providence has is a facet system called the DTRAX, no relation to every salesman's nemesis, REPTRAX. The DTRAX is a facet system for the cervical spine patients with radiculopathy. The premise is to decompress and stabilize the affected cervical level via a minimally invasive approach.
The powers to be at Providence are Art Taylor and Jeff Smith formerly of Kyphon fame who have aligned themselves with an Advisory Board comprised of Drs. Berven, Bradford, Eyster and Harvinder Sandhu. Considering some of the previous technologies that have been marketing for facet therapies, maybe these guys are on to something, but you know what TSB says, can this technology stand up to the test of time? Only time will tell. TSB wants to know, what our readers think?
