Globus Medical a leading musculoskeletal implant manufacturer, has announced that the Excelsius GPS, a system providing robotic trajectory guidance and navigation, has received CE mark.
This platform technology is designed to support both minimally invasive and open orthopaedic and neurosurgical procedures, with applications ranging from the cervical spine to the sacroilium, long bones and cranium. Excelsius GPS integrates with Globus Medical implants and instruments and is compatible with pre-operative computed tomography (CT), intra-operative CT and fluoroscopic imaging modalities. The system is designed to minimise radiation exposure, streamline workflow, and reproducibly assist in implant placement.
Norbert Johnson, vice president of Robotics, Imaging, & Navigation at Globus, says, “Our goal with the Excelsius GPS system is to improve the continuum of care for patients, surgeons, and hospitals through the application of robotic and navigation technology in the fields of spine, trauma, and cranial surgery.”
