The Delivery Instrumentation System
Nested cannula delivery of the implant via a working portal as a continuation of the standard discectomy procedure. The Delivery instrumentation System has been designed with surgical friendliness in mind.

The Kunovus Disc Device
The Kunovus Disc Device consists of an inflatable balloon which is first inserted into the nucleus cavity following discectomy, and then receives a two-part in situ curing biomaterial. Elastomeric flexible containment balloon provides bespoke size and avoids extrusion. The in situ curing biomaterial cures within 3 minutes after mixing and forms a uniform elastomeric implant that restores the structure and biomechanical integrity of the intervertebral disc.
The bright white elliptical shape within the intervertebral disc space represents the Kunovus Disc Device after implantation.
