Stryker Launches Q Guidance System with Spine Guidance Software

Stryker announced the launch of its Q Guidance System for spine applications, combining new optical tracking options with sophisticated algorithms of the newly launched Spine Guidance Software to deliver more surgical planning and navigation capability than ever before.

When used with the Q Guidance System, the Spine Guidance Software is intended as a planning and intraoperative guidance system to enable open or percutaneous computer-assisted surgery and is the first spine navigation software to receive FDA clearance for use with pediatric patients aged 13 and older.

With the addition of the Q Guidance System, customers now have access to a robust solution that includes imaging, guidance, and instruments and is fully integrated and designed to meet complex customer needs, said Robbie Robinson, President of the Spine division at Stryker.

The Q Guidance System is a powerful platform that has provided reliability and performance in a solution that is conveniently scalable to a wide array of surgical procedures, ranging from a single-level fusion to a multi-level deformity correction, said Stephen George, M.D., Director of Spine Surgery, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.
