It may be due to reluctance to publish it by that name because some doctors have patents on the technique. This may cause other clinics to develop a workaround and call it by a derivative or not offer the technique without authorization or paying a royalty.

iWell looks like it holds patents on this, including on a special saw used to perform it. Also surgeons have reservations on its efficacy and merits, and that it may be more prone to follow up revisions, so the cost benefit may not be justified.
