Balance ACS (BACS®)

BACS provides solutions focused on achieving balance of the spine by addressing each anatomical vertebral segment with a 360-degree approach in the axial, coronal and sagittal planes, emphasizing Total Body Balance™ as a critical component to surgical success.

Balancing the head over the pelvis and lower extremities is the foundation of spine surgery. The spine is a complex structure that provides both stability and three-dimensional motion. Each spine segment is an independent vertebrae that moves in the axial, coronal and sagittal planes. Movement of each segment is part of the complex integrated network of the comprehensive spine serving to provide balance for the entire body, which enhances energy preservation.


BACS System

The BACS System provides the necessary services—from preauthorization tools and preoperative planning
to 3D anatomical modeling and postoperative reporting—to facilitate quality patient outcomes and to support the intraoperative process.

Educational Workshops & Trainings

K2M will host physician workshops on Balance ACS at leading spine conferences in the United States and internationally. These workshops will feature leading spine surgeons presenting on the latest research and clinical applications of the Balance ACS system. Surgeons can also attend comprehensive trainings through K2M courses and other individualized opportunities.
