Accelus, a privately held medical technology company focused on accelerating the adoption of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) as the standard of care in spine, today announced Vail-Summit Orthopaedics and Neurosurgery (VSON) as the first ambulatory surgery center (ASC) to acquire the Remi Robotic Navigation System, a comprehensive robotic targeting and navigation platform that provides robotic-assisted pedicle screw placement for surgeons performing lumbar spine fixation.

The Remi Robotic Navigation System was designed to address the limitations of current spinal robotic systems and features the same accuracy with a smaller footprint, efficient procedural workflow, shorter setup and teardown times, and more economically accessible pricing. Remi’s Big Eye™ camera technology features a wide angle of capture with flexible table-mounted positioning to reduce line-of-sight occlusion. The system’s robotic targeting arm is also mounted to the surgery table, eliminating the operating room footprint required by traditional robotic systems. Its surgeon-centric software is designed around spine surgery workflows to help anticipate next actions and enhance the system’s ease of use.

“With a much smaller footprint and lower cost than traditional robotic navigation systems, Remi is designed specifically to meet the needs of the ASC,” said Ernest Braxton, MD, MBA, board-certified Neurosurgeon and Chief of Neurosurgery at VSON. “Remi represents the next generation in spine technology, and I’m confident in the accuracy, efficiency, and safety this enabling technology will provide my patients. I’m also excited about the future evolution of the technology as Accelus works to make the system compatible with 2D imaging and interbody placement.”
