Spine surgery is a rapidly evolving field as more traditional large open spine surgeries continue to give way to minimally invasive spine (MIS) surgical techniques.

The O-arm® Imaging System is a complete multi-dimensional surgical imaging system. It is designed for use in spine, orthopaedic, and trauma-related surgeries.

During back or spine surgery, precision is everything. O-arm® technology allows the surgeon to view clear, real-time images of your body during surgery. These images allow the surgeon to see precisely where to place instruments and to make the best decisions during your surgery. This technology allows to perform major spine surgery through minimal incision with un-paralleled safety and accuracy. This translates to lower risk and complication rates and greatly increases the accuracy of the procedure. The surgeon precisely navigates delicate areas like the spinal cord, confidently place screws and align joints, and minimize pain and recovery time. In addition, the O-arm® System provides a live image of anatomy during surgery.

The O-arm® forms a ring around your body. The ring then rotates to take 2-D fluoroscopy (real time moving x-rays) and 3-D images around the body. The O-arm® also has a navigational component, like a GPS, that allows your surgeon to track instruments in relation to your anatomy, monitor the anatomy itself and quantify soft tissue balancing. This type of navigation is vital when working in areas such as the brain and spinal cord where accurate instrument placement is critical.

In all aspects of life, we see technology rapidly evolving on a daily basis. These technological advancements translate readily to the surgical equipment we use in the operating room. When applied appropriately, and by experienced users, these advancements continually enhance the safety and accuracy of minimally invasive surgery which leads to improved and safer patient outcomes.
