NuVasive incorporated on July 21, 1997, as a medical device company in San Diego, California. The NuVasive approach to Minimally Invasive Surgery was a new surgical platform called Maximum Access Surgery . The flagship procedure is the XLIF procedure, a minimally disruptive procedure that allows spine surgeons to have direct access to the intervertebral space from the side of the body, as opposed to the front or back. Their patient support division is called The Better Way Back. NuVasive acquired the LessRay product from SafeRay Spine and launched the product in 2018 as a fluoroscopy system that enhances the clarity of radiographic images. They provide medical equipment, surgical support, and necessary funds to those in need of spine surgery around the world through the NuVasive Spine Foundation.
