SpineGuard’s Dynamic Surgical Guidance Granted New US Patent

By Julie A. Vetalice

SpineGuard was granted a U.S. patent for Dynamic Surgical Guidance™ (DSG) technology addressing the application of bone quality measurement.

DSG technology combines a bipolar sensor and pedicle screw, allowing the surgeon real-time guidance and the ability to insert the screw into vertebrae without drilling a pilot hole. Its application in bone quality measurement is intended as an improvement over the use of the DEXA scan, focusing on a more precise anatomical area.
