Aurora Spine Corporation : FIRST U.S. AND INTERNATIONAL SURGICAL IMPLANTATIONS OF ZIP 51(TM) MIS INTERSPINOUS IMPLANT PERFORMED

Carlsbad, California, April 28, 2015
- Aurora Spine Corporation (TSXV: ASG) announced today the first surgical
implantations of the company's ZIP 51(TM) Minimally Invasive Interspinous
Implant in the United States and Germany.

The U.S. surgery was performed at NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital in Jonesboro,
Arkansas by Dr. Rebecca Barrett-Tuck. The international surgery was performed
at the Protestant Hospital in Göttingen, Germany by Dr. Christian Reparon.

"The ZIP 51 MIS interspinous fusion system is a great option for the L5-S1
segment," said Dr. Reparon. The instrumentation is very intuitive, easy to
use and the implantation is fast and simple via a small incision."

"Aurora Spine's ZIP 51(TM) implant, the newest addition to the ZIP(TM)
product line, was developed to deliver rigid stabilization with bone graft at
the L5-S1 level of the human spine," said Laszlo Garamszegi, Aurora Spine's
CTO. "Aurora Spine is pleased to offer the ZIP 51 implant as a distinctive
sacral fusion option to surgeons and patients worldwide as part of the Aurora
Spine Screwless Procedure(TM)."

"We are very excited to offer our ZIP 51 device internationally," said Sven
Claes, International Product Director of Aurora Spine. "The implant features
flared lower spikes which are designed to increase the possibility of greater
bone purchase. Like our ZIP ULTRA(TM) implant, the ZIP 51 MIS interspinous
fixation implant for spinal fusion, consists of the ZIP ONE-STEP(TM) Locking
Mechanism, and various sizes to accommodate variations in patient anatomy
which eliminates the use of a set screw."
