Middlesex Leads the Way

Middlesex Health recently became the first health system in New England to use Globus Medical's Excelsius3D™ intraoperative imaging device.

It began using the state-of-the-art device in early July during spine surgeries. However, the technology can also be used during other, general orthopedic surgeries as well. 

This technology is important because it offers superior enhanced imaging. It also combines three imaging modalities (cone-beam CT scan, fluoroscopy and digital radiography) into one piece of equipment, minimizing the equipment needed in the operating room and decreasing the amount of time a patient is in surgery.

In addition, Globus Medical's Excelsius3D™ works in tandem with Globus Medical’s ExcelsiusGPS™, which Middlesex began using in 2018 to view patient anatomy in real time during minimally invasive spine surgeries. Together, the technology is designed to improve the accuracy when placing implants, lower radiation exposure, and shorten the length of a surgery.
