The study has shown that its disruptive controlled fixation sterile packed NEO Pedicle Screw System of implants and instruments reduces operating room time by up to 29% (23 minutes) and cost by €1,415 (US$1660) per treated case on average in short construct surgeries.
In 2011, spinal fusion surgery was the procedure with the highest aggregate hospital costs (US$12,837 million; 7.1%) with mean costs of US$ 27,600 per hospital stay in the USA. A complex set of instruments and various screw options in diﬀerent dimensions are oﬀered by manufacturers to accomplish this task. Preparing these complex systems prior to and after surgery involves numerous processes that have to be evaluated in terms of time expenditure, logistics, patient safety and total costs. Beyond their clinical outcomes, Neo Medical’s new generation of care implant platforms are expected to improve the eﬃciency of the entire perioperative process, to minimise risks for users and patients and lead to signiﬁcant savings in overall operational costs.
