Spine Surgery Imaging & Navigation

Elevating the surgical experience to a new level.

Taking care of you and your family is our top priority. Our professionals focus on enhancing patient care and satisfaction — every day. That’s why our operating rooms carry advanced surgical imaging and navigation equipment. It makes all the difference.

In an effort to carry out this commitment to you, Columbus Regional Health is pleased to offer the StealthStation S8 and the O-arm system.

Easing your uncertainty with unparalleled accuracy.

This technology serves as an intra-operative spinal navigation system offering advanced visualization capabilities in the operating room to assist the surgeon with clear visualization of the patient’s specific anatomy and achieve the surgical goal with less invasive techniques. 

The system offers the most advanced version of “Stealth Technology” – an integrated system of medical-grade hardware, software and surgical instruments for spine procedures. In combination with the O-arm, this allows the surgeon to utilize 3-D visualization of a patient’s specific anatomy in real-time during surgery to use instruments with an accuracy within fractions of a millimeter.

The O-arm System provides detailed, multi-dimensional images while in the operating room.

“This is exciting technology for the surgical care of our patients at Columbus Regional Health," said Dr. John Chambers, a surgeon specializing in spinal surgery of children and adults.

"Our ability to use Stealth Navigation in the operating room further enhances our surgical patient care by allowing the utilization of minimally invasive techniques when appropriate and further improving patient care. The marriage of the surgeon’s intuition and expertise, combined with this state-of-the-art equipment and utmost accuracy, provides the safest environment and best possible outcomes for our patients."

What Is Surgical Navigation?

Computer-based surgical navigation solutions have been used as a tool by doctors in operating rooms for many years.

Surgical navigation is key to offering enriched visual and quantified information to a surgeon during neurosurgery for accurate tool localization and possible avoidance of key anatomical areas of the spine.

Using scans before and in real-time during the procedure, surgeons who use the StealthStation can visualize the patient’s anatomy in 3D, in order to localize the use of instruments to precision within fractions of a millimeter of accuracy.
