TECHNOLOGY CASE
Presented by: Jean-Pierre Mobasser, MD
MIS TLIF Treatment of Radiculopathy
This case of a 40-year-old male with right L5 radiculopathy and progressive symptoms, demonstrates use of the O-arm® Surgical Imaging System. Dr. Mobasser stated, “The O-arm® is a critical instrument for use during MIS surgery,” and “the ability to see an axial view while placing instrumentation is a huge leap forward.” Furthermore, “Our experience shows that navigation now saves time rather than adds time to the case.”
