NuVasive will expand its San Diego global headquarters by creating an innovation centre of excellence. In this centre, surgeons will follow trainings on the latest NuVasive spine technology as well as procedures intended for driving clinical predictability and improving patients’ lives.
The medical device company aims to transform spine surgery with minimally disruptive, and integrated solutions.

In addition to procedural offerings and its world surgeon education, other services of the campus include:
- an expanded surgeon education lab for onsite surgeon training and education;
- a prototype design facility with 3D printing capabilities;
- state-of-the art biomedical testing center; and
- a new amenities building which will include an onsite café, fitness center and meeting space to accommodate up to 750 attendees.
“Our headquarters expansion reflects our commitment to the San Diego region where medical technology companies and the life sciences industry have significantly contributed to the growth for decades,” said Gregory T. Lucier, NuVasive’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Our new facility will offer NuVasive the unique opportunity to have our design facility, lab space and product development in one location where visiting surgeons and our product development teams can collaborate closely on our newest technologies. With the support of Mayor Faulconer and the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, we are eager to continue our investment into the San Diego area with a facility that attracts, retains and grows the high-performing employee talent we have here at NuVasive.”
