Augmented Reality Technology

Our surgeons are of the first doctors in the area to use augmented reality technology for complex spinal surgeries.

Using the technologically-advanced Augmedics xvision Spine System, Drs. Stromberg and Weight are able to visualize a patient’s spinal anatomy during surgery without looking away from a patient to a computer screen.  This precision-engineered system projects 3D high-resolution radio-graphic images into a headset that is worn by our specialists doctors during surgery.

With this groundbreaking new technology, the surgeons are able to keep all of their focus on the patient as the 3D images show the detailed anatomy of the patient’s spine and allows them to overlap the 3D images with what they can actually see.

This new innovation enables Dr. Weight to perform surgeries with more precision and implement minimally invasive techniques with greater efficacy, safety and ultimately reduce patient recovery time.

Our expertly trained and seasoned surgeons, Drs. Lynn Stromberg and Mark Weight, provide these surgical treatments and more.
