Your Spine Requires a Unique Road Map

 

 ExcelciusGPS

  • ExcelsiusGPS® creates a surgical plan based on a patient’s unique anatomy, guiding the robotic arm to a specific region of your spine, similar to a planned pathway on GPS. Our expert team of surgeons uses this pathway to accurately conduct spine surgery with the utmost precision resulting in the best outcomes to get you back on your feet again.

 

O-Arm

  • O-arm™ Surgical Imaging System is a platform designed for use in spine surgeries. It gives our spine surgeons the ability to increase their precision during surgery since it shows both 2D and 3D image structures of the spine in the operating room on a computer screen with amazing accuracy. The O-arm is an integral tool for the surgical team that enhances the best patient outcomes.
