First System for Dynamic Intra-operative Measurement of Segmental and Global Spine Alignment Receives FDA Clearance

ATLANTA, July 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MiRus is pleased to announce FDA 510(k) clearance of the GALILEOtm Spine Alignment Monitoring System, a non-optical, wireless, real-time measurement system for segmental and global sagittal spine alignment. The GALILEOtm Spine Alignment Monitoring System received the 2018 Spine Technology Award at the NASS meeting for excellence and innovation in spine surgery navigation.


Eric Nottmeier, MD Neurosurgeon in Jacksonville, Florida stated "sagittal malalignment has been shown to directly impact the quality of life and function of patients. This innovative product will provide surgeons with much-needed real-time feedback for achieving optimal sagittal alignment in the OR."

"Achieving spinal alignment correction in spinal deformity surgery is particularly challenging. For the first time, surgeons can now receive dynamic feedback as they perform corrective procedures and confirm that the planned sagittal alignment has been achieved," said Thomas Morrison, MD, neurosurgeon at Polaris Spine & Neurosurgery, Atlanta, Ga. 

Angad Singh, VP Robotics and Surgical Navigation commented "Given the increased attention to sagittal plane alignment in recent years, we are pleased to offer the first and only FDA-approved product that intraoperatively measures this important clinical parameter in real-time without reliance on repeated imaging. The product is also an example of the kind of dynamic tracking and feedback we will be incorporating into our robotics platform."
