Is navigation really necessary?
A spine surgeon doesn’t need navigation. Just like you don’t need a GPS to get from A to B. You can use a map or memorize your route before you leave. But a GPS provides so much more than just directions. It tells you which way is the fastest. Which route to take to avoid obstacles. And it lets you know if you’re going to turn onto the wrong street.
As a spine surgeon, we know you’ll always arrive at your desired outcome. Spine navigation will help you get there more efficiently.Contact us
Guiding the surgeon’s expertise
Spine navigation amplifies the surgeon’s extensive skill and experience. The software works in tandem with the surgeon to provide additional insight and guidance.
More accuracy, less radiation
Brainlab Spinal Navigation delivers accurate pedicle screw placement and enables drastic reduction of X-Ray exposure.
Brainlab Spinal Navigation delivers accurate pedicle screw placement compared to conventional surgical techniques. Navigate implants and instruments on 2D images, 3D scans, MR or CT datasets in all stages of surgery.
- Accurately plan incisions and trajectories with any instrument
- Supports implant placement especially in anatomically critical areas
- Guides posterior incision and approach for minimally invasive surgeries
Decreased X-Ray Exposure
By requiring fewer verification scans due to precision instrument tracking, Brainlab Spinal Navigation enables reduced X-Ray exposure to the surgical team and the patient. Visualize incisions and trajectories in real-time and plan with any instrument at skin level.
- Reduce X-Ray exposure to surgical team and patients
- Plan incisions and trajectories at skin level
- Visualize instruments on 2D images, 3D scans, MR or CT scans in real time
How spine navigation amplifies surgery
Simulate before you cut
Treat a multitude of indications
From cervical and high thoracic dorsal instrumentations to routine lower lumbar surgery, complex deformity surgery, tumor treatment and surgery planning, Spinal Navigation is ready to help you maneuver through your case. Both pre- and intraoperative images can be registered for navigation so you can work from the most useful dataset.
For routine degenerative procedures, you can intraoperatively plan pedicle screws with the help of the instrument tip offset tool. Your entry points and trajectories can be planned and stored even before the first incision. Once planned, let autopilot mode guide you to your intended destination.
During deformity cases such as scoliosis, you can navigate on more than one dataset simultaneously to bring together all the preoperative information you need. Fusion applications adapt your preoperative plans to the patient’s intraoperative position while saving time and radiation exposure from additional intraoperative scans.
3D objects visible below the surface enhance precise approach planning, add context, and give a further understanding of the patient’s anatomy, allowing you to make informed decisions with live updates during surgery.
Navigation for every surgeon
Configure to suit your needs
Spine & Trauma Navigation is the basis for the digitalization of your hospital’s entire spine surgery workflow. Start with this piece of straightforward software and scale up whenever you need.
Integration for every O.R.
Adding Brainlab Spine & Trauma Navigation is possible for every surgeon and every surgery. Brainlab integrates with C-arms, Cone Beam CTs, intraoperative CTs, angio devices and third party instruments. Regardless of budget, workflow or existing equipment, we can level up your surgeries.
