Globus Medical, Inc. GMED recently announced its first surgeries with its just-launched CREO ONE. Notably, the CREO ONE is the first robotic screw in the market intended for spine surgery with ExcelsiusGPS.

CREO ONE screws are compatible with CREO MIS and CREO AMP screw heads and is part of the CREO AMP family. CREO ONE uses existing CREO navigation instruments.

More in the News

CREO ONE simplifies pedicle preparation by enhancing the company’s groundbreaking modular pedicle screw platform while maintaining navigational accuracy and increasing pullout strength by 86% as compared to traditional pedicle screws tapped to size. The screw is the first of its kind to provide this level of advanced robotic integration, streamlined workflow and pullout strength.

The CREO ONE screws save time and improve efficiency by reducing procedural steps. The screw completely eliminates the need to tap and further streamline the operative workflow.

The awl-style tip allows the screw to follow a pre-planned trajectory and maintain the navigational accuracy without performing traditional pedicle preparation, which makes the entire process more reliable.

In November, Globus Medical announced its first surgeries with ExcelsiusGPS Interbody Solutions. The system offered best-in-class responsiveness through next-generation software, advanced merging capabilities, and faster robotic arm movement. With the use of navigated instruments to target planned interbody trajectories and optimal port or retractor placement, ExcelsiusGPS Interbody Solutions seamlessly enhanced surgeon workflow.
