Spinal Elements inks Firefly deal with Might Oak Medical
Spinal Elements said it will work with Mighty Oak Medical to market the Firefly surgical guidance system.
The system uses bone models and guides matched to the patient’s anatomy through pre-surgical planning and computer-designed guidance solutions. Mighty Oak Medical uses data from the patient’s CT scan to make patient-specific, 3D-printed, pedicle screw guides.
Although navigation is becoming more popular among surgeons, robotic-assisted systems can be expensive and inaccessible for smaller facilities. Mighty Oak Medical said it hopes that using patient-specific, 3D-printed guides will become the preferred course of treatment for surgeons.
