In the ever-evolving world of medical technology, groundbreaking innovations continue to reshape the landscape of healthcare. One such innovation that has been making waves is SeaSpine's 7D Flash System, a surgical navigation technology that is revolutionizing spine surgery. In a recent interview conducted by at the 2023 North American Spine Society (NASS) conference, Beau Standish, the President of Enabling Technologies at SeaSpine, shed light on the remarkable features and benefits of this cutting-edge system.


SeaSpine, as a pure-play spine company, has set a new standard in the field of spine surgery with its relentless focus on innovation and growth. The organization is committed to delivering better patient outcomes through research and data-driven product development. One of their flagship innovations is the 7D Flash System, a surgical navigation technology that is changing the way surgeons approach spinal procedures.

The 7D Flash System: A Game-Changer

In the interview, Beau Standish introduces us to the 7D Flash System, a surgical navigation technology designed to assist surgeons in various aspects of spinal procedures. This system utilizes Machine Vision, using cameras in the operating room to make real-time decisions based on the patient's anatomy. What sets this system apart is that it relies solely on visible light, eliminating the need for radiation intraoperatively.

The Benefits of the 7D Flash System

Reduced Radiation Exposure: Unlike traditional methods that use radiation-based navigation, the 7D Flash System uses visible light, significantly reducing radiation exposure for patients, surgeons, and medical staff.

Shorter Procedures: The technology streamlines surgical procedures, making them shorter and more efficient.

Faster Recovery: Patients experience shorter hospital stays and quicker recoveries.

Integrated Unit: The system's all-in-one form factor reduces clutter in the operating room, providing a more organized and efficient workspace for surgeons and medical staff.

The Versatility of the 7D Flash System

One remarkable feature of the 7D Flash System is its open platform design. While it is compatible with SeaSpine Orthofix products, it can also be used with other implant systems, offering flexibility to surgeons and hospitals. The system's adaptability makes it an attractive choice for a wide range of spinal procedures.

Education and Training

Given the advanced nature of the 7D Flash System, education and training are crucial. SeaSpine offers comprehensive training programs, including benchtop and cadaver training. Additionally, they provide on-site support to ensure surgeons and hospital staff are comfortable with the system before using it on patients.

The Future of Surgical Navigation

In the short term, SeaSpine plans to further integrate their existing products and expand their pre-planning portfolio. In the medium to long term, they aim to deploy this powerful technology in other medical procedures beyond spine surgery.


SeaSpine's 7D Flash System is a testament to the relentless pursuit of innovation in the medical field. It is poised to redefine the standards of spine surgery, offering safer, more efficient, and patient-friendly procedures. As technology continues to advance, it's clear that innovations like the 7D Flash System will play a significant role in improving patient outcomes and enhancing the capabilities of medical professionals.
