Dr. James Lynch of Spine Nevada Becomes First Surgeon to Use Augmedics xvision Spine System with Recently FDA Cleared Perc Pin

Sep 23, 2021

September 23, 2021 07:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time CHICAGO--( BUSINESS WIRE )-- Dr. James Lynch of Spine Nevada , a board-certified neurological surgeon with multiple fellowships in the field of spine, recently became the first surgeon to use the Augmedics xvision Spine System with Perc Pin. Cleared by the FDA in July 2021, the disposable Perc Pin helps ensure the patient marker is easily in the surgeon's field of view while avoiding the surgical site. The first use occurred September 2, 2021 at Renown Regional Medical Center during lumbar spine surgery and fusion in which the Perc Pin was inserted into the posterior superior iliac spine (PSIS). In addition to providing better visualization of the patient marker, the Perc Pin reduces the size of the required incision for percutaneous procedures, ensures rigid fixation, is available in three lengths, and allows minimal instrumentation. “It continues to be an honor to work in partnership with Augmedics to improve and optimize the xvision system," said Dr. Lynch, who in June 2020 became one of the first surgeons in the world to use xvision and was the first surgeon to use the system at a community hospital. The xvision Spine System features augmented reality and consists of a transparent near-eye-display headset and all elements of a traditional navigation system. It accurately determines the position of surgical tools in real-time and superimposes them on the patient's CT data. The navigation data is then projected onto the surgeon's retina using the headset, allowing them to look at both the patient and the navigation data simultaneously. Designed to revolutionize surgery, the xvision Spine System offers the surgeon better control and visualization, which may lead to easier, faster, and safer surgeries. “We’re very happy to offer the addition of the Perc Pin to our portfolio. At Augmedics, we strive for continued innovation that enables surgeons to offer their patients minimally invasive surgical options,” said Tim Murawski, Augmedics chief commercial officer. Spine Nevada's neurosurgery department, led by Dr. Lynch, continually trains in new technologies and minimally invasive surgical techniques for patient benefit.
