Enabling technologies in spine surgery continued to gain market acceptance in Q219 given benefits including lower revision rates, ability to market to patients and ability to plan the surgery beforehand, bolstered by several presentations on the benefits of computer-assisted spine surgery at the International Society for Computer-Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery (CAOS) meeting, held in New York City in June. While questions on long-term clinical benefits associated with robotic-assisted surgery remain, CAOS President, Dr. Patrick Meere, believes robotics in spine and orthopedics will continue to gain traction. In SmartTRAK’s interview with Dr. Meere in the article “CAOS 2019: A Synergy of Advanced Technologies,” he noted, “There is not a single venture in the medical field where robotic technologies entered and exited. They have always persisted. There may well be a lag, there may be naysayers, and there may be ...
