Local Surgeon’s Work Helps 1,000s

Rolando Puno, M.D., orthopedic spine surgeon with Norton Leatherman Spine Center, invented the Epicage System — a spacer that replaces a damaged disc between two vertebrae.

The spacer is frequently used in patients with degenerative disc disease, a common age-related condition.
