It is designed specifically to make surgery safer, and help surgeons ensure implants and hardware placement are even more precise. Minimally invasive procedures using the Globus ExcelsiusGPS™ can mean less blood loss, less muscle damage, and faster recovery.

Conditions Treated with Globus ExcelsiusGPS™

Patients with these conditions often suffer with debilitating symptoms like:

  • Low back pain
  • Leg pain
  • Sciatica
  • Uneven legs, hips or shoulders
  • Abnormal gait
  • Breathing difficulties when the rib cage puts pressure on the lungs
