ZimVie is pleased to provide the Surgeon Locator to allow you to find surgeons who have been trained on The Tether - Vertebral Body Tethering System. In order to be listed on the Tether locater, the surgeon must have been trained on The Tether by the ZimVie Medical Education team (per FDA guidelines for a humanitarian use device) and have an active institutional review board (IRB) approval. Both training and IRB approval are required to have access to the system. This locator may not be a complete listing of trained surgeons in your area, and ZimVie does not make any recommendation or referral regarding the proper facility or surgeon for performance of a surgery. ZimVie assumes no liability arising out of your use of this list and your visiting any particular facility or surgeon for performance of a surgery.
Surgeons listed on this locator have completed the surgical training requirements for The Tether - Vertebral Body Tethering System and have completed a minimum of one Tether- Vertebral Body Tethering System procedure. A surgeon’s information on this locator is not an endorsement or representation of experience with vertebral body tethering procedures. It is recommended that patients ask physicians their level of experience with the procedure as part of their process for identifying a surgeon that is best for them.
