San, Diego-based medical technology company Carlsmed and Seattle-based spinal imaging system firm Precisive Surgical are merging to develop a personalized workflow platform.
The companies, which didn’t disclose the specifics of the merger, said the system will enable earlier surgical interventions to place personalized implant devices in patients with complex spinal deviations.
“Today’s imaging for severe spinal deformities is primarily used for diagnostic purposes only,” said Co-Founder and CEO of CARLSMED, Inc. Mike Cordonnier. “The proprietary platform we are developing enables surgeons to use this information directly for surgical intervention. Our platform changes the way traditional radiographic imaging studies are taken.”
