Jonathan Hyde, MD, completed his 100th procedure using the Augmedics' Xvision spine navigation system, the medtech company said in an April 21 LinkedIn post.
The company's augmented reality headset assists surgeons with screw placement and has recently been updated to assist with cervical and iliosacral anatomy, according to the post.
Dr. Hyde, president and lead orthopedic surgeon at Miami Spine Specialists, said in the post that the Augmedic system's accuracy and reproducibility was better than he has seen when using robotic technologies.
"The first impressions that I had after performing the initial learning curve, not only have been maintained but improved upon as I have surpassed 100 cases with the system," Dr. Hyde said. "I found the system to be worthwhile in routine surgical procedures, as well as in surgical deformity correction."
