OrthoPediatrics Achieves 500th Case with FIREFLY Pedicle Screw Navigation Guides

OrthoPediatrics reached the milestone 500th case performed with FIREFLY® Pedicle Screw Navigation Guides technology in collaboration with Mighty Oak Medical.

FIREFLY uses artificial intelligence-driven presurgical planning to optimize size and trajectory of the pedicle screws when performing complex procedures.

The mechanical constraint provided by the 3D-printed patient-specific guides reduces intraoperative radiation and speeds screw placement. OrthoPediatrics exclusively distributes FIREFLY in children’s hospitals throughout the U.S.

While frequently used with OrthoPediatrics’ RESPONSE™ Spine System, FIREFLY guides can be used with any spinal deformity correction system.

David Bailey, President of OrthoPediatrics, said, “This technology allows us to advance our goal of providing pediatric orthopedic surgeons with the tools they need to help children with scoliosis, while promoting safer pediatric procedures. We are glad to see increasing adoption of the technology among our customers around the world.”
