PARIS & SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SpineGuard (FR0011464452 – ALSGD), an innovative company that designs, develops and markets disposable medical devices intended to make spine surgery safer, announced today the adoption of PediGuard by a 15thFrench University Hospital specializing in spine surgery: CHU de Bordeaux.
CHU de Bordeaux has acquired several technologies designed to safeguard and optimize back surgery and the surgical procedure itself, such as per-operative 3D imaging, navigation coupled with infrared and robot-assisted surgery. The clinical benefits of SpineGuard’s device are essential for young surgeons in training as well as for complex cases, because PediGuard offers an additional guarantee for the patient and reduces use of per-operative radiation. The CHU de Bordeaux has decided to support its surgical team with this optimization process by focusing on safety and teaching.
Pierre Jérôme, CEO and co-founder of SpineGuard, added: “CHU of Bordeaux is well-known for its expertise in spine surgery. Many orthopedic surgeons who practice there benefit from international renown among their peers, and it is extremely satisfying that they are beginning to use our DSG™ (Dynamic Surgical Guidance) based devices. PediGuard is now used in half of the French university hospitals and a quarter of the spine-surgery teaching institutions in the United States.”
