Dr. Edward Perry, a fellowship-trained neurosurgeon at SpineNevada Minimally Invasive Spine Institute was one of the first surgeons to use the new Medtronic O-arm® Multidimensional Imaging System at Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno.
The O-arm® technology enhances outcomes for spine surgery patients by allowing surgeons to visualize in real-time the surgical site. This permits more precise placement of instrumentation and hardware.
By combining mobility, low-dose x-ray images and speedy image processing, the O-arm® provides live 3-D navigation during surgery. Within seconds the surgeon receives highly detailed surgical site images. The O-arm® imaging system makes possible more precise placement of spinal hardware. Other benefits include smaller incision, shorter surgery duration, less post-surgical pain and faster recovery than with traditional spine surgery techniques.
The O-arm® is manufactured and distributed by the Navigation division of Medtronic, Inc. As the worldwide leader in surgical navigation, Medtronic offers a wide range of solutions in surgical navigation for spine, neurological and orthopedic surgery.
