Dr. David Musante published in Journal of Orthopedic Surgery and Research.

David Musante, MD, recently completed a retrospective study evaluating the fusion rate and pain levels one year after a lumbar spine surgery using a product called Trinity Evolution.  The findings were published in The Journal of Orthopedic Surgery and Research earlier this Spring.  Dr. Musante found that postoperative pain levels were significantly improved at 2 weeks, 3 months, and 12 months in comparison to pre-operative leg or back pain of the patients, who had all been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease, radiculopathy, stenosis, and decreased disc height prior to surgery.

This study was retrospective, so it was conducted by reviewing patient charts.  There are often prospective clinical trials at EmergeOrtho.  For more information on Orthopedic and Rheumatologic Clinical Trials, please visit the Clinical Research page on our website.

He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the North American Spine Society, the International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery, the North Carolina Spine Association, the North Carolina Medical Society, and the Durham-Orange County Medical Society.
