Dr. Tyler Smith completes 50 cases using Augmedics spine navigation


Tyler Smith, MD, orthopedic spine surgeon at Roseville, Calif.-based Sutter Health, has completed his 50th case using Augmedics' Xvision spine navigation system, according to a March 28 tweet from Augmedics. 

Dr. Smith was the first surgeon in Northern California to use augmented reality navigation for spinal surgery, according to the tweet. 

Xvision is an AR, wireless spine system that allows surgeons free movement within the operating room, improving surgery outcomes and eliminating surgeon attention shift between screens.
