Mr. Enxing will be responsible for leading all aspects of the company’s Sales, Marketing, Health Economics/Reimbursement and Professional Education strategies, related to the already successful launch of the Superion® Indirect Decompression System for the treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis.

Michael Enxing brings over 20 years of successful global leadership experience in product commercialization in the medical device, spinal and chronic pain fields. Most recently, Michael served as Vice President of Sales at Nevro Corporation where he led the company to impressive growth both internationally and domestically over the previous four years.

(f/k/a Cardio Vascular Solutions CSI); Advanced Neuromodulation Systems, Inc. (acquired by St. Jude Medical, Inc.); Stryker Corporation; and Tecnol Medical Products, Inc.

Earl R. Fender, President & Chief Executive Officer of Vertiflex, said “We are very pleased to have attracted an executive of Michael’s caliber into our organization. Michael is a visionary leader who understands sales and marketing execution, market dynamics, critical organizational metrics, and cultural drivers that deliver team success and ensures the best customer engagement experiences possible.

Mr. Enxing said, “I’m proud to join the Vertiflex team. As a result of the company’s achievements in product development, Level I clinical evidence generation, earning a PMA approval and Category I reimbursement for Superion, the stage is set to build a large, high growth, new category in spine that is focused on compelling clinical outcomes for patients and their physicians. Based on my prior experience in commercializing an early generation product for lumbar spinal stenosis, I believe Superion, having significant published peer-reviewed data, is positioned as the best-in-class minimally invasive solution for lumbar spinal stenosis that will also compare well to open surgical decompression in treating patients suffering from LSS.”
