Comprehensive case coverage

With the StealthStation™ S8 surgical navigation system, you can confidently handle a comprehensive range of spine procedures, including:

  • Spine decompression or fusion (including, but not limited to ACDF, ALIF PLIF, TLIF, cortical screw placement)
  • Spinal or pelvic fixation including, but not limited to SI fixation; placement of occipital pedicle, cortical, and facet screws; and fixation for scoliosis, kyphosis, or other deformity
  • Treatment for spinal or sacral trauma including, but not limited to, vertebroplasty and sacroplasty
  • Intuitive user interface with two touchscreen monitors that support multitouch gestures like pinch-and-zoom and drag-and-drop1
  • Better visualization with easier manipulation of 2-D and 3-D views and intuitive layering and blending tools2
  • Single or dual cart configurations for greater flexibility3

Capabilities of the StealthStation™ navigation system

  • Interfaces with intraoperative imaging systems, including iMRI , iCT, C-arms, and the O-arm™ surgical imaging system, to orient surgeons with both 3-D and 2-D images of the patient’s anatomy
  • Tracks surgical instruments in real time, based on preoperative and intraoperative images
  • Relays movements of instrumentation relative to patient anatomy via optical or electromagnetic navigation options
  • Helps guide your planning and approach prior to and during surgery, allowing you to create, store, and simulate progression along one or more surgical trajectories

Dual cart Stealth™ S8 system design

Interact with the StealthStation™ surgical navigation system through two large, 27-inch, high-definition, touchscreen monitors, providing ultimate flexibility in interacting with the system.

Dual StealthStation™ S8 monitors

  • Ample storage space for patient examinations with a one terabyte solid-state drive
  • Fast performance and image manipulation with 16 GB of RAM memory
  • Flexibility in positioning and addressing line-of-sight issues using an optical camera with a large tracking volume

Streamlined workflows in the OR

Immerse yourself in the effortless usability of the touchscreen interface offered by the StealthStation™ S8 system.
