TORONTO, Oct. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — As providers around the world look for new and innovative ways to improve surgical outcomes and patient safety, the South Denver Surgery Center has taken a leap into the future with the installation of the 7D Surgical System for spinal procedures. This system virtually replaces standard fluoroscopy, providing the surgical team with a fast, accurate and radiation-free tool for the placement of spinal implants.
“7D Surgical’s technology makes perfect sense in the ASC setting where speed, safety, ease of use and cost are critical factors,” said Beau Standish, Chief Executive Officer of 7D Surgical. “We will expand our presence in the ASC market while continuing to build on our hospital based installations.”
The 7D Surgical System is the first and only Machine-Vision Image Guided Surgery (MvIGS) platform. For the first-time, spine surgeons can guide their tools to the critical anatomy using sophisticated camera technology linked to a computer in the operating theater. The underlying technology is similar to what is used in the latest self-driving automobiles. Unlike time-consuming, conventional image guided surgery (IGS) systems that depend on intraoperative radiation, this new MvIGS platform can achieve an incredibly fast surgical workflow for spine procedures, reducing operative time for patients.
“We’re excited to be the first to have the new 7D Surgical navigation system in the western United States. We feel this technology offers groundbreaking workflow efficiency to optimize patient outcomes and patient safety,” said Dr. David Vansickle, neurosurgeon with Neurosurgery One.
Dr. J. Adair Prall, also with Neurosurgery One, agrees. “This system puts us right where we want to be in the outpatient environment – fast, accurate, safe and cost-effective. This technology is the future of spine surgery.”
