Technologies featured include Single Position Lateral Surgery driven by ExcelsiusGPS® Interbody Solutions
AUDUBON, Pa., Sept. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Globus Medical, Inc. (NYSE:GMED), a leading musculoskeletal solutions company, will highlight the company’s latest spinal implant and enabling technology innovations at the North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting held September 25-28, 2019 in Chicago, IL at booth #2218.
“We are proud to be a NASS sponsor and this year’s meeting is very exciting as we plan to unveil several new technologies poised for launch,” said Dave Demski, Chief Executive Officer. “With the addition of the ExcelsiusGPS® Interbody Solutions platform, we will demonstrate the integration of our best-in-class surgical planning, robotic navigation, and expandable interbody technologies designed to enhance operating room efficiency and improve clinical results in spine surgery.”
The company’s participation includes in-booth surgeon presentations on the next evolution of the ExcelsiusGPS® platform featuring Interbody Solutions. This new solution offers navigation with constant real-time feedback during dilation, disc preparation, and implant insertion to help achieve optimal implant placement for minimally invasive posterior and lateral lumbar interbody fusion procedures. The platform’s rigid robotic arm maximizes retractor stability and creates a strong and stable working channel. Using today’s most comprehensive, robotic-assisted spine surgery platform, surgeons will be able to navigate instruments and implants with the most advanced expandable interbody portfolio on the market.
The exhibit will also include live demonstrations of Globus Medical’s Single Position Lateral Surgery technique, which has been increasingly utilized by surgeons over the last few years. Single Position Lateral Surgery is a fully integrated procedural solution that combines robotic and navigation enabling technologies with advanced musculoskeletal implant systems to treat complex multi-level spine pathologies from a single lateral position. Procedures that traditionally required multi-staged surgery using anterior, lateral, and posterior patient positions to treat spinal levels including L5-S1 can now be performed while the patient remains in one lateral position. This technique has the potential to provide tangible benefits for surgeons, hospitals, and patients in terms of time, accuracy, surgical efficiency, and reduced radiation exposure through a holistic surgical solution.
Additional new technologies will be exhibited including CREO® NXT Stabilization System, SI-LOK® Select Sacroiliac Joint Fixation, and the full line of HEDRON™ 3D Printed Spacers.
