RENO, Nev. (KOLO) — Over the last 15 months, some of the world’s most advanced spinal care has taken place in Northern Nevada.

In July of 2,020 Spine Nevada’s Dr. James Lynch was the first surgeon in the country to use Augmedics Xvision in a community hospital. He’s now the first to reach 100 cases using the cutting-edge technology, which essentially allows surgeons to look through a patients’ skin using a pre-loaded CT scan and virtual headset.

“A long fusion that would’ve taken us an hour before can be done in about 15 minutes,” said Dr. Lynch. “The proof is in the pudding. The last 100 patients, most of them have done very well and benefited from this technology.”
