USF Health Recognition and Advancement

Excite Medical donation to USF adds to spinal decompression study


USF Health patients now have access to a specialized device meant to reduce back pain, thanks to the donation by Excite Medical.

Excite Medical donated two devices – the DRX9000 and the DRX9000C – as treatment options that may prove helpful to patients not benefiting from other standard non-surgical options for easing back pain, said Nathan Schilaty, DC, PhD, assistant professor and the Lincoln Endowed Chair in Chiropractic and Biomechanics Research in the Department of Neurosurgery in the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine.
