The first spine surgeries with Globus Medical's Excelsius3D three-in-one imaging have been completed with the ExcelsiusGPS robot, the company said May 18.
The procedures were performed by:
- Paul McAfee, MD, and Mesfin Lemma, MD, at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital (Baltimore)
- Roland Kent, MD, at Northwest Specialty Hospital (Post Falls, Idaho)
- Jeffrey Goldstein, MD, at NYU Langone Health (New York City)
Excelsius3D is an X-ray system designed for 2D fluoroscopy, 2D digital radiography and 3D imaging. It is indicated for use where a physician benefits from 2D and 3D data on anatomic structures and high-contrast objects with high X-ray attenuation such as bony anatomy and metallic objects, according to Globus. The imaging system integrates with the company's flagship spine robot.
"The addition of Excelsius3D to our operating room has helped to streamline our navigation workflow with ExcelsiusGPS," Dr. Goldstein said. "The intraoperative imaging technology enables us to efficiently visualize anatomy, offers three imaging modes in a single comprehensive system, and is easy for our radiology technicians to maneuver and position."
