Meoclinic is the 1st private clinic in Germany with Pulse technology
The Meoclinic in the heart of Berlin announced today that it is the first private clinic in Germany to use NuVasive’s Pulse platform with the integration of various technologies to support the digital transformation of spinal surgery. This ground-breaking technology can significantly reduce surgery times and, most importantly, surgery risks, maximising the chances of success and minimising patient recovery times.
The Pulse platform increases patient safety, efficiency and the reproducible results of surgical procedures in spinal surgery. In a single platform, it integrates navigation, intraoperative neuromonitoring, radiation reduction, imaging enhancement, rod bending and tools to optimise spinal procedures. Pulse helps surgeons overcome some of the most common clinical challenges in spine surgery, such as radiation exposure, nerve and spinal cord injury, and overall OR time, and can be used in 100% of spine procedures.
“Basically, you can think of the Pulse platform a bit like a car navigation system. The only requirement is that you know how to drive,” comments Prof Dr Michael Akbar, specialist in orthopaedics and trauma surgery and Surgical Medical Director of the MEOCLINIC. “The system guides me reliably on unfamiliar terrain and informs me of individual and spontaneous obstacles and potential problems on familiar routes. This allows me to reach my destination more safely, quickly and efficiently.”
The availability and networking of several spinal technologies on the Pulse platform supports surgeons in highly complex procedures on the one hand and enables less invasive procedures on the other.
The advantages at a glance:
- Increased patient safety
- Reduced anaesthesia time
- Reduced operating time
- Less invasive operations / atraumatic operations
- Improved imaging
- Reduced radiation exposure
- Reduced length of stay in hospital
“The benefits for our surgeons and patients are immense,” comments MEOCLINIC Managing Director Lutz Schackert. “The Pulse platform allows us to reduce the risks and times of operations enormously and also gives us the opportunity to always use the latest developments in spinal surgery and to continuously develop further.” The Pulse platform was developed by NuVasive, the world’s largest technology company specialising in spinal surgery.
