Best practices for spine surgery using a motorized hinge table

Thursday, October 22nd, 2020 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CT

The clinical value of using any novel technology needs to be compelling to be adopted in today’s healthcare environment. In this panel discussion, the Spine Team from the University of Minnesota headed by David W. Polly Jr., Chief of Spine Service, presents three different cases using the hinge-powered ProAxis® Spinal Surgery Table; a Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF), a Pedicle Subtraction Osteotomy (PSO), and a Multilevel TLIF for deformity. Each procedure presents a distinct set of challenges. Each surgeon will discuss how the unique capabilities of the hinged table facilitate a safer, more controlled ability to provide high quality surgical spine care.
