DEERFIELD, Ill., May 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Surgalign Holdings, Inc., (NASDAQ: SRGA) a global medical technology company focused on elevating the standard of care by driving the evolution of digital health, announced today that it will be exhibiting at ISASS 2023 – the 23rd Annual Conference – sponsored by the International Society for Spine Surgery (“ISASS”) and Medical Education Resources. This three-day event will take place June 1-3, 2023 at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, CA.
The International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery is dedicated to advancing major evolutionary steps in spine surgery. Since its inception in 2000, ISASS has worked to achieve its mission of acting as a global, scientific, and educational society organized to provide an independent venue to discuss and address the issues involved with all aspects of the basic and clinical sciences of motion preservation, stabilization, technological innovations, MIS procedures, biologics, and other fundamental topics to restore and improve motion and function of the spine. ISASS 2023 will bring together industry and medical professionals from around the world, who will collaborate over three-days to learn about innovative technologies and techniques in spine surgery, across the areas of robotics, endoscopy, ERAS, Master’s Techniques, Complications, MIS, Outpatient Surgery and more. From keynotes, sessions, workshops and exhibits, this event will feature engaging discussions about the latest advancements in medical devices for spine and new technologies that are positively shaping the spine care industry.
Surgalign will have on display at its booth (#401), its upgraded HOLO Portal™ Surgical Guidance System and several of its hardware and biologics products including the Streamline™ spinal fixation system, TETRAfuse® and TiPlus™ 3D Technologies, and FibreX™ demineralized bone fibers, among others.
The HOLO Portal system is powered by HOLO™ AI that processes intraoperative images to autonomously segment and label the anatomy and plan patient-specific pedicle screw trajectories that are approved by the surgeon. The system uses AR to overlay the segmented AI reconstruction as a real-time 3-D visualization over the patient’s actual anatomy throughout the surgical procedure. This help surgeons see implant trajectories and guide surgical instruments. In March 2023, the Company launched new advancements to its HOLO Portal system based on early clinical experiences and insights from leading spine surgeons in the U.S. This release includes over 250 software enhancements, hardware upgrades, and integration with over 20 surgical tools. These improvements were designed to better support open lumbar pedicle screw procedures by adding an array of new pedicle preparation tools and by improving workflow and setup.
