Northwest Specialty Hospital in Post Falls, Idaho, has implemented three robotic technologies to bolster its spine surgical care, according to a Nov. 16 Coeur d'Alene Press report.

The hospital features an ExcelsiusGPS, the Xenex LightStrike Robot and Synaptive Medical's Modus V.

Modus V is a robotic digital microscope and LightStrike is a disinfection system that kills pathogens such a COVID-19 in surgical suites using xenon bulbs and ultraviolet light.

Additionally, Northwest Specialty Hospital features Stryker's iSuite operating room software, which features voice automation, fluorescence imaging and other digital technologies to improve productivity and safety.

Also, as an ExcelsiusGPS Premier Center, the hospital invites spine surgeons to observe the Globus Medical spine robot in action.
