Invuity, a surgical photonics company, launched the Invuity Waveguide XT System, a universal, "drop in" illuminator for minimal access surgery at the North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting.
This new product adds to the company’s proprietary photonics-based portfolio, which addresses the inherent challenges of minimal access surgery and improves outcomes.
Invuity’s Intelligent Photonics technology delivers unsurpassed visualization of tissue planes, critical structures and anatomical landmarks, which enables surgeons to perform minimally invasive spine procedures more easily and safely.
The Waveguide XT System was developed in response to the growing need for improved visualization as surgeons are working through increasingly small incisions.
"One of the unique benefits of Invuity’s Waveguide XT System is that it can be strategically placed within the incision to direct and shape the illumination deep into the disc space providing startlingly clear visualization without the risk of thermal tissue damage," said Warren F. Neely, MD, Neurosurgery, Christus Santa Rosa Health System in San Antonio, TX. "With this innovative drop-in device, surgeons benefit from superior visualization without altering their standard surgical technique or instrumentation."
Invuity is a surgical photonics company that develops and markets Intelligent Photonics devices. The company’s portfolio of in-situ visualization devices make possible new minimally invasive surgical approaches and techniques that result in increased surgical efficiency and safety with improved patient outcomes.
