Computer Assisted Spine Surgery
What is Computer Assisted Spine Surgery?
Computer assisted spine surgery uses the StealthStation® Navigation System in conjunction with the O-arm® Surgical Imaging System during surgical procedures to create 2-D and 3-D images. These images allow the surgeon to track, in real-time, the position of surgical instruments and implants in relation to the patients actual anatomy.
Surgical navigation may be used to help implant pedicle screws during spinal fusion procedures to treat spinal instability caused by:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
O-arm Surgical Imaging System Benefits
- Seamless Navigation Integration
By integrating with Medtronic StealthStation surgical navigation systems, the O-arm System reduces X-ray exposure, increasing safety for both OR staff and patients.
- Speed in the OR
Fast access to real-time, low-radiation 2D fluoroscopic images or full 3D reconstructions in standard and high definition.
- Superior Image Viewing
The O-arm System's large field-of-view and distortion free flat panel technology provide precise image quality for viewing any part of the patient's skeletal anatomy from head to toe.
- Automated Positioning Controls and Workflow
The completely motorized O-arm System and user-friendly controls support quick and easy handling and a smooth workflow.
- Confidence in the OR
Visualization to confirm hardware therapy placement, potentially eliminating revision surgeries
