Mr Seamus Morris FRCS (Tr & Orth) FSEM AFRCSI MCh MMedSci Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon (Edited quotation referring to the Stryker Spine Navigation System)

“Spinal surgery has been revolutionised over the last 20 years by the introduction of pedicle screws. These screws are placed in small columns of bone (pedicles) in the patient’s spine which can now be as small as 5 mm in diameter. Accurate placement of the screws allows very firm anchorage in the patient’s spinal column. The Stryker navigation system allows the surgeon to place pedicle screws very accurately in the patient’s spine with tolerances of less than 1mm without needing additional intra-operative radiology”
