Posterior reduction and fusion of spondylolisthesis has a number of recognized and accepted procedural difficulties dependent on its severity. The Jazz™ Band is a novel system designed primarily for posterior fixation of the spine; however, its uses can be applied to a breadth of spinal conditions. Its benefits include that one size will fit all spinal levels; the connector is designed for multiple union rod diameters and reduced comorbidity when compared with other surgical methods. We present a case of a 26-year-old female with an L5/S1 spondylolisthesis slip angle of 117.4°. A 25° improvement in the spondylolisthesis slip angle was achieved with the use of the Jazz™ Band. The Jazz™ Band demonstrates excellent short-term results, and in order to determine the clinical outcomes and efficacy of the Jazz™ Band system, long-term results and analysis should be performed.
