Surgical Simulation Training for Tissue-sparing Posterior Cervical and Lumbar Fusion

Frequently Asked Questions

How do most spine surgeons train on this technology?

Anatomical model training and surgical simulation are the most popular training modalities for spine surgeons and neurosurgeons and valued for their convenience.  Both options allow for effective, hands-on training at your O.R. or office and make it easy to add training sessions to busy schedules.   

Which patients may benefit from this technology and what are the criteria for patient selection?

We specifically cover patient selection during training because spine surgeons are often curious about which patients are good candidates for this technology. Understanding the indications and contraindications for tissue-sparing posterior fusion is crucial for patient safety and optimal outcomes.
