AR on the rise in 2021: 13 notes


Augmented reality technology has taken off in spine and orthopedic surgery in 2021. In December, ClarifyEye expanded in Spain and Oman. The hospital is the first in Denver to implement Augmedics' Xvision system. Riverside Healthcare partnered with Brainlab to add its Zeiss Kinevo Microscope to its spine program. The first spine case combining augmented reality and a surgical robot was recently performed by Kornelis Poelstra, MD, PhD, director of The Robotic Spine Institute of Silicon Valley in Los Gatos, Calif., in May.
