Medacta Announces First Lumbar Fusion Procedure with NextAR Spine Augmented Reality Surgical Application in US
"While utilizing the 3D Direct option, I was able to seamlessly register the NextAR Platform to my intraoperative 3D scan, accurately place the pedicle screws, and enjoy the ability to keep my eyes on my patient the entire time using the NextAR Smart Glasses. Implementing the NextAR Platform didn't compromise any of my current workflow and actually, worked better than I anticipated" says Kevin J. McGuire, M.D., M.S.
