FIREFLY Spinal Navigation Guides receive universal clearance from FDA

Mighty Oak Medical is a medical device incubator that continues to focus on novel surgical solutions to solve problems for patients and surgeons. Our goal is to make spinal surgery safer, faster, and more efficient, by offering more intuitive solutions to the existing challenges surgeons face every day. While navigation is gradually becoming a standard of care in spinal surgery, it remains very burdensome with its cost and complexity. Adoption has been slow. FIREFLY Navigational Guides represent a cutting edge alternative to the complex and costly existing forms of intraoperative navigation in spinal surgery. FIREFLY Technology is a patented platform joining pre-surgical planning with the accuracy and patient specificity of additive manufacturing to offer improved solutions for navigating spinal procedures. FIREFLY Guides are  3D printed, patient specific and anatomically matched drill guides created by our technicians to implant pedicle screws in the spine with far greater accuracy, speed, and safety than conventional forms of navigation.

Mighty Oak Medical announces that FIREFLY Guides have now been FDA cleared for universal use with any compatible pedicle screw system, and within their cleared indications.

This universal clearance allows FIREFLY to expand its growing alignment with many well known and successful pedicle screw systems currently available to surgeons worldwide.
