NuVasive, which focuses on minimally invasive spine surgery products, will add its recent acquisition to its existing nerve monitoring system, NeuroVision, which is designed for discreet and directional nerve avoidance and detection during lateral access spinal procedures. The acquisition will increase the number of neurophysiologists who can set up NeuroVision.
The acquisition is in preparation for the future, as IOM is expected to grow 15 percent annually over the next few years. The company expects Impulse Monitoring to contribute $8 million to its fourth quarter revenue and continue growing in 2012.
