Augmented Reality Guided Spine Surgery

First in Texas to implement this groundbreaking technology.

To provide a new standard of care for spinal implant procedures, we offer groundbreaking augmented reality (AR) guided spine surgery. Performed using the Augmedics Xvision Spine System, AR guided spine surgery allows surgeons to “see” your spine in 3D through the skin during minimally invasive spinal implant surgery, giving them better control and visualization, which may lead to easier, faster, and safer surgeries.

Why AR guided spine surgery?

Similar to a real-time GPS, this “see-through” surgery lets your surgeon know exactly where to place the implants in your unique anatomy, and it is bringing a new standard of personalization and care to the operating room. The Xvision Spine System is different from other image guidance systems as it keeps your surgeon’s focus directly on you, rather than a remote screen that displays your anatomy.

What this approach means to you

  • Personalized procedures

  • Accurate spinal implant placement, which could lead to fewer revisions of procedures1

  • Fast and safe procedures

  • Less radiation for the physician during the procedure

To learn more about AR guided spine surgery ask your doctor if see-through surgery with the Xvision Spine System is right for you.  Click here to find a spine surgeon on the staff at Baylor Frisco.

Baylor Frisco became the first hospital in Texas to use augmented reality to perform spine surgery.  This procedure was highlighted recently:
