For more than thirty five years, Lenox MacLaren™ has taken the lead in supplying spinal and neurosurgeons with excellence in specialty spine instruments. We are proud to be the only surgical instrumentation company that specializes and manufactures custom-made spinal instruments in the United States.

Each blade is hand-ground and each instrument hand-designed to ensure the best experience for you, the orthopedic surgeon, as well as the best for your patients.

From spinal curettes and chisels to spine elevators and osteotomes, each instrument is the direct result of the innovative talents of master craftsperson and chief design engineer, Linda K. Lenox, in collaboration with pioneers in the development of spinal implant systems and instrumentation. This includes the surgical expertise of:

  • Dr Charles F. Heinig – Orthopedic surgeon
  • Dr. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei – Retired spine deformity surgeon specializing in spinal reconstruction
  • Dr. Behrooz Akbarnia – Retired spine deformity surgeon now focusing on research
  • Dr. Marc Asher – Professor Emeritus, University of Kansas, Department of Orthopedic Surgery
  • Dr. Samuel “Sam” Chewning – specializing in minimally invasive spine surgery, spinal trauma, degenerative spine disorders
  • The late Dr. Eduardo Luque – Orthopedic surgeon who introduced segmental spinal instrumentation
