Surgalign Holdings received FDA 510(k) clearance for its Holo Portal surgical system for lumbar spine surgeries.
Holo Portal is the first artificial intelligence-driven augmented reality guidance system for spine surgery, according to a Jan. 18 news release. It combines machine learning-based guidance technology, AR spine segmentation and automated surgical planning.
"With clearance in hand for our guidance application, our near-term focus is getting the platform into the hands of surgeons as we work toward a market release," Terry Rich, Surgalign's president and CEO, said in a news release. "While the current capabilities of the Holo Portal system have the potential to offer a quantum leap in the way surgical procedures are performed, we have a much larger vision for our Holo AI digital health platform across a variety of healthcare specialties and throughout the care continuum."
