7D Surgical, developer of ground breaking surgical navigation technologies, announced today that Spartan Medical has purchased the 7D Surgical System to support its strategic sales plan in Maryland, Washington D.C. and Virginia. 7D Surgical has entered into an exclusive sales representative agreement with Spartan Medical for many of the premier medical facilities within those markets.
"Our new partnership with Spartan Medical is another important step in our rapid growth strategy in North America," said Beau Standish, Chief Executive Officer of 7D Surgical. "Their expertise and unique relationships with federal facilities will be critical in bringing the most advanced machine-vision based navigation technologies to DoD spine surgeons and the U.S. military personnel and veterans they serve."
The 7D Surgical System is the first and only Machine-Vision Image Guided Surgery (MvIGS) platform. For the first-time spine surgery patients can be automatically registered using only visible light in just seconds with 7D Surgical's Flash™ Registration technology. Unlike time-consuming conventional image guided surgery (IGS) systems that depend on intraoperative radiation, this new MvIGS platform can achieve an incredibly fast surgical workflow for spine procedures. Continuing to leverage the capabilities of machine-vision, 7D Surgical's soon to be released Flash™ Fix technology can also update and correct the registration at any time during the procedure in just seconds.
"To me, this is similar to the invention of the X-ray," said Vince Proffitt, President of Spartan Medical. "Those of us that have been in surgeries supporting our implants know the real challenges of accurate and reproducible imaging and navigation. We know how dependent the surgery may be on the equipment technicians' skills and training, and we also know the incredible risks of daily radiation. The 7D Surgical System eliminates these critical concerns and creates a surgeon controlled, real-time, radiation-free, simple and accurate imaging and navigation system…truly a technological marvel!"
Live demonstrations of the 7D Surgical System are available at Spartan Medical Headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland. Contact Spartan Medical to schedule a time to experience the system in action at 1-888-240-8091, or email Spartan Medical at firstname.lastname@example.org.
