Clinical Need





The World's first platform to

enable real-time, 3D measurements

of spinal alignment intraoperatively

in less than 30 seconds and with up

to 80% reduction in radiation exposure compared to current X-ray solutions.


"I would use this every hour of surgery and this will likely save up to an hour and half a liter of blood loss from reduced osteotomies." 

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Columbia University

"It can be very challenging to achieve the sweet spot of alignment. With Spine Align's technology, we should be able to significantly reduce the likelihood of revision surgeries."

Neurosurgeon, Johns Hopkins Hospital 

"There is nothing else out there like this.  Most companies are behind by focusing on X-ray-based, 2D measurements."

Orthopaedic Surgeon, NYU Langone
