New York, Michigan spine leaders debut latest Globus Medical robotic tech


Sheeraz Qureshi, MD, and Paul Park, MD, were the first surgeons to use the ExcelsiusGPS Interbody Solutions system, Globus Medical said in a Nov. 12 news release.

ExcelsiusGPS has evolved from planning and placing pedicle screws to performing robotic-assisted transforaminal and lateral lumbar interbody fusions from start to finish.

The latest technology helps surgeons navigate disc preparation, trialing and interbody insertion through a rigid arm-mounted retractor.

Dr. Qureshi, spine research director at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, used the technology to perform a robotic TLIF. 

Dr. Park, director of spinal surgery at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, performed a single-position lateral interbody fusion.
