RENO, July 1, 2020 – Spine Nevada Minimally Invasive Spine Institute announced that Dr. James Lynch, a board-certified and fellowship-trained neurological surgeon, was the first private practice surgeon in the United States to use the Augmedics xvision Spine System at a community hospital. xvision is the first Augmented Reality Guidance system to be used in surgery. It allows surgeons to visualize the 3D spinal anatomy of a patient during surgery as if they have "x-ray vision," and to accurately navigate instruments and implants while looking directly at the patient, instead of a remote screen. The xvision Spine System uniquely builds and improves upon existing surgical navigation systems to meet the surgeons' needs and provide technical confidence in the operating room.

Reno, NV, May 11, 2020 -- Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and concern for the possible drain on hospital resources including both low acuity and high acuity (or ICU) bed availability for COVID-19 infections, the local healthcare system enacted policies to postpone all elective surgeries except semi-urgent and emergency conditions such as progressive neurologic deficit and life-threatening situations. Spine Nevada Minimally Invasive Spine Institute (SNMISI) has been very aggressive in supporting and implementing these inpatient policies at all the major hospitals, including Renown, St. Mary’s, Northern Nevada Medical Center, Carson Tahoe, and the outpatient Surgery Center of Reno. The tactics began on 03/16/2020 and continued until Monday, 05/04/2020. Thankfully, we have seen a lower than expected infection and mortality rate in Nevada and, more specifically, in Washoe County. As a result, with the advice of local healthcare officials and specific guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the National Institute of Health as well as the American College of Surgeons, the Washoe County medical facilities have opened up and returned to performing elective surgeries.

Dr. James Lynch was a keynote presenter at the 3rd International Meeting on WEIGHT-BEARING MRI, his presentation was on Competitive Advantages of Weight-Bearing MRI in Surgical Planning. The Esaote G-Scan Brio is a weight-bearing MRI. This InMotion MRI allows the technology to image you in both the supine (flat on your back) position and the standing position. The MRI table actually rotates from the horizontal position to a vertical position which allows pictures to be taken while the neck and low back are in a weight bearing state. Studies reveal 20-30% larger or more frequent findings with WEIGHT-BEARING INMOTION MRI imaging than traditional non-weight bearing MRI.
Dr. James Lynch is the CEO and Founder of Spine Nevada and IXE Healthcare Group. Dr. Lynch is one of a handful of spine surgeons with three fellowships in the specialty of spine surgery. He has been a consultant neurosurgeon in the Reno area since 2000 after completing his neurosurgery residency at Mayo Clinic and spine fellowships at Queens Square in London and Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix.
