Hospitals across the country are making new capital purchases to expand the services and capabilities of their spine teams.
Three hospitals that have recently installed new spine devices:
Community Howard Regional Health in Kokomo, Ind., installed the Mazor X Stealth Edition, Medtronic's new robotic guidance system for spinal surgery.
Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City installed EOS imaging's system for orthopedic diagnostics. Focusing primarily on hips, knees and spine, it utilizes 2D and 3D imaging, 3D modeling of X-ray images, and web-based surgical planning for advanced surgical planning in the OR.
Holland (Mich.) Hospital added the Mazor XTM Stealth Edition Robotic Guidance System to its da Vinci and Mako offerings. All three tools assist providers in performing minimally invasive spine surgery.
