Siemens & Nuvasive Partner on Spinal Surgery Workflow Development

August 13, 2018


NuVasive said last week it had inked a strategic partnership deal with Siemens Healthineers looking to develop and advance technology designed for minimally invasive spinal surgery.

Through the deal, dubbed the Spine Precision Partnership, the companies will look to jointly advance their proprietary technologies, looking to improve operating room workflow efficiency and the delivery of minimally disruptive spinal technologies, San Diego-based NuVasive said.

The first step in the partnership will be the integration of NuVasive’s Pulse surgical automation platform with Siemens Healthineers Cios Spin mobile 3D imaging platform designed for intra-operative quality assurance, the companies said.

“Currently, a number of hospitals and healthcare systems treat patients undergoing spine surgery through often cost-intensive, intra-operative CT scans with a general navigation system with limited utilization in spine surgery cases. The combination of NuVasive’s Pulse system and the Siemens Healthineers’ next-generation advanced imaging technology provides a compelling offering for hospitals and surgeons who require a scalable, cost-efficient technology that maximizes OR workflow efficiency and significantly improves visualization for spine surgery. We firmly believe that this combined offering will enable advanced clinical benefits driving superior patient outcomes, delivered through greatly improved visualization of the anatomy promoting successful anatomical access and spinal implant placement,” NuVasive chair & CEO Gregory Lucier said in a prepared statement.
