Posted on: August 15th, 2023 by Our Team

Spine, back and neck orthopedic surgeons Dr. Kern Singh and Dr. Frank Phillips have worked together to design the Vital 5 ReLeaf Catheter aimed at reducing post-operative pain in patients undergoing orthopedic and spinal procedures.

The catheter helps deliver an ongoing and controlled amount of local anesthetic to the surgical site via its unique and proprietary ‘leaf catheter’ design. “The unique design characteristics of the device make it uniquely suited to spinal applications,” stated Dr. Singh.
