Today patients with spine disease have more treatment options, including minimally invasive spinal fusion procedures. During these procedures, advanced real-time image guidance is critically important in helping you get a better understanding of the anatomical structure and define the correct pathway for device placement.

 

Our Spine suite offers a wide range of imaging platforms and spinal navigation software for image guided spinal surgery. Using procedure-specific tools can support you in improving your results.

 

These solutions are designed to help you perform open and minimally invasive spine procedures with greater confidence and precision. Whether you are placing pedicle screws during a spine fusion, treating spondylitis or performing percutaneous spinal interventions, we help you focus on what’s important – your patient.

How can a Hybrid OR improve minimally invasive spine surgery?

As physicians perform more minimally invasive spine surgery procedures, many are working in a Hybrid Operating Room (OR). The Orthopedic and Emergency Surgery team at the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH) explains the benefits they have experienced over the past three years of performing minimally invasive spine surgery in Philips Hybrid OR.

The value of a multi-purpose room


In a multi-purpose Hybrid OR more disciplines will benefit from the ability to perform minimally invasive procedures. This reinforces the business case as cost can be shared and room utilization will increase with complex procedures that have a high return on investment. The Azurion Hybrid OR offers unique features that create an easy to use and customized OR in an instant for each discipline and procedure.
