3K+ screws placed using ExcelsiusGPS: 5 insights


Since its 2017 launch Globus Medical's ExeclsiusGPS has been used to place more than 3,000 screws.

Here are five insights:

1. The novel robotic guidance and navigation system can be sued for orthopedic and neurosurgery.

2. ExcelsiusGPS is compatible with preoperative CT, intraoperative CT and fluoroscopic imaging for various spine surgeries to reduce radiation and streamline the surgical process.

3. Alexander Vaccaro, MD, PhD, recently led a study to compare the robotic-assisted surgery with standard screw placement. He and 10 other surgeons evaluated pedicle screw placement time, accuracy and radiation dose for the ExcelsiusGPS in open and minimally invasive spine approaches.

4. The study showed robotic navigation improved pedicle screw accuracy and allowed for larger screws to be placed.

5. Additionally the ExcelsiusGPS reduced radiation exposure and time screw insertion time compared to traditional techniques.
