Spinal Tech

Spine surgeon Leonel Hunt, MD, was named to the medical advisory board for Ocutrx Technologies, a company focused on augmented and extended reality.

Dr. Hunt, who works with the Cedars-Sinai Spine Center and Cedars-Sinai Orthopedic Center in Los Angeles, is part of the company's International Surgical Steering Committee and will help advance the ORLenz headset, according to a Jan. 24 news release.

The company is looking to develop its AR/XR headset technology for spinal interventions and orthopedic surgeries. The DigiLoupe AR/XR headset is designed for higher resolution and greater magnification, and it is more ergonomic.

"The prospect of integrating the DigiLoupe headset's visual and ergonomic capabilities into spine surgery as a stand-alone device offers a new frontier in surgical precision," Dr. Hunt said in the release. "As a surgeon with a biomedical engineering background, I can say that this technology's advanced visualization and surgeon positioning will significantly enhance surgical accuracy and patient safety."
