I haven’t seen anything like it and when it's fully embraced and accepted by the surgeons as an alternative to a microscope, I would say yes, it could be a disrupter and that’s the definition of a breakthrough. It has to add value, not cost.

Viseon MaxView ™ doesn’t just substitute for direct visualization but instead adds value by helping optimize instrument and implant placement before entering the disc space and when coming back out with instruments. It reduces the need for flouro shots since you can see exactly how far into the disc space your instrument is on the screen. Without it, your view is somewhat obscured by the handle of the implant or instrument, making you more reliant on fluoro.

Viseon MaxView™ and its facilitation of single position surgery is making me entirely re-evaluate the way I incorporate lateral lumbar interbody fusion into my practice. This technology is a real game-changer and has increased the number of single position lateral/posterior access surgeries I am doing. MaxView™ really facilitates the placement of lateral cages when a case otherwise demands the prone position and facilitates performance of posterior decompression when the lateral position is preferred, greatly expanding the portfolio of cases I am choosing for lateral lumbar interbody fusion. The other really nice thing is the versatility MaxView™ provides in real-time, allowing me to decide intraoperatively whether to do a LLIF or a TLIF at a particular level. I also get the sense that the improved visualization in LLIF allows me to not open the lateral retractor as much, which, theoretically, should lead to less risk of complications.

Viseon MaxView™ has enabled me to let go of the knife and trust my Fellows months earlier in their training process. They get to see very early in their training how I perform the operations and subsequently I am able to directly observe and direct their hands through video assistance.
