Musculoskeletal implant manufacturer Globus Medical has secured CE mark approval for Excelsius GPS robotic trajectory guidance and navigation system.

Developed to support both minimally invasive and open orthopedic and neurosurgical procedures, the Excelsius GPS system can be used in applications ranging from the cervical spine to the sacroilium, long bones and cranium.

The system, which incorporates with the firm’s implants and instruments, is compatible with pre-operative CT, intra-operative CT and fluoroscopic imaging modalities.

It will minimize radiation exposure, streamline workflow and reproducibly assist in implant placement

Globus Medical robotics, imaging and navigation vice president Norbert Johnson said: “Excelsius GPS  is another example of continued innovation from Globus Medical, utilizing feedback from expert surgeons from different specialties.

“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.”

Last October, Globus Medical has launched Quartex OCT stabilization system, which can be used to treat challenges associated with posterior OCT fusion.

The system, which offers 90° of conical angulation, features screw heads that accept .5mm or 4.0mm rods in either titanium or cobalt chrome alloy.

In addition, the system enables surgeons to use larger screws with diameters up to 5.5mm to access thoracic anatomy.
