When Brainlab first introduced its neurosurgery software in 1989, a neurosurgeon who used image guidance was seen as somehow lacking in skill. Today, using surgical navigation software is considered best practice as the reliable precision that it adds has become an essential tool for surgeons. Brainlab is proud to have driven, built upon and contributed to the evolution of neurosurgical precision.
Since the company’s first mouse-controlled, menu-driven surgical planning and navigation software was released, Brainlab has been constantly innovating in the neurosurgical space. Working closely with thousands of customers in more than 100 countries has yielded innovations like CT/MR fusion, passive markers, touch screen displays and laser surface registration which are all now standard of care.
As a result of this continuous push to introduce new technologies and evolve the industry, according to US News & World Report, 8 of the top 10 hospitals for neurology and neurosurgery in the US use Brainlab surgical navigation technology.
Brainlab Cranial software is designed for both routine and complex surgical procedures, with intuitive user interfaces and automated workflows. Groundbreaking Elements applications help surgeons make the most of patient data during preoperative planning and even intraoperatively. Platforms like Curve® Navigation, Kick®, Loop-X Mobile Imaging Robot and Buzz Digital O.R. are transforming the surgical space and becoming integral to daily life in the operating room.
