In the vibrant heart of Los Angeles, the North American Spine Society's (NASS) annual conference played host to a groundbreaking revelation in the realm of spine surgery. Against this backdrop, Doctech.live, a renowned platform for Med-Tech Innovation Reports and journalism sponsored by Ghost Productions Inc., conducted an exclusive interview with Dan McPhillips, the Director of Enabling Technologies and Market Development at Captiva Spine. Captiva Spine, a prominent medical device company, is generating ripples of excitement with its revolutionary WatchTower™ Spine Navigation and Robotics System.
Doctech.live's mission, centered on delivering cutting-edge insights into the world of health and medicine, came to life at NASS 2023 when they sat down with Dan McPhillips to explore the remarkable advantages that the WatchTower™ system offers both medical practitioners and patients.
The WatchTower™ Spine Navigation and Robotics System has emerged as a game-changer in the field of spine surgery. It seamlessly integrates pre-operative CT scans with 2D imaging through an advanced algorithm, producing real-time 3D images of the patient's spine during surgery. This groundbreaking technology eliminates the need for intraoperative 3D imaging for registration, significantly reducing operational time and radiation exposure for both patients and medical staff. Simultaneously, it enhances the safety and efficiency of spine surgeries.
In describing the system, Dan McPhillips noted, "This is the WatchTower navigation system. What makes WatchTower unique is its use of a 2D registration method to provide 3D navigation. In an Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) setting, there's no need to invest in an intraoperative CT scanner or perform an open exposure to capture an image of the spine for registration. WatchTower solves the problem economically by eliminating the need for a CT scanner while still allowing for percutaneous procedures. It's faster, more cost-effective, and significantly more compact than any other system available."
