Zimmer Biomet 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 Zimmer Biomet 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 Zimmer Biomet does not make any recommendation or referral regarding the proper facility or surgeon for performance of a surgery. Zimmer Biomet 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. A surgeon’s information on this locator is not an endorsement or representation of experience with vertebral body tethering procedures. Clinical experience performing vertebral body tethering procedures with The Tether System is NOT part of the requirement to be listed on this locator. 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.
