Reno, Nevada, June 14, 2021 -- Dr. Edward Perry surpasses placing 5,000 pedicle screws using the O-arm image-guided stealth navigation system. Developed by Medtronic, O-arm is the gold standard of care for intraoperative spinal imaging. It delivers reliable results for a wide variety of spine surgeries. “In my experience the O-arm has shown unparalleled accuracy. It provides me the information I need, exactly when I need it.” Of the 5000 pedicle screws placed by Dr. Perry, only 14 screws required intraoperative adjustments after placement; equivalent to a 99.72% accuracy rate. "Because we consistently perform a post placement spin, the 14 screws were readjusted before leaving the operating room. This has eliminated all hardware related returns to the operating room. Further, because of the initial accurate placement of screws, future revisions are significantly reduced, benefiting patients," explains Dr. Perry. The O-arm technology is used with stealth guided systems for image registration, including the Augmedics augmented reality system and other robotic systems. Learn more.
