About Globus ExcelsiusGPSTM

The ExcelsiusGPS™ brings an even greater level of precision to surgeons performing spine surgery.

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™

The Globus ExcelsiusGPS™ is used to assist the surgeon with the conditions that would require spinal fusion, including degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, fractures, and spinal tumors. Patients with these conditions often suffer with debilitating symptoms like:

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