Dr. Schopler Case Study

Identify | Cervical Spine Positioning Challenges

Excerpts from Dr. Schopler’s Letter to BoneFoam.

Enclosed are my preliminary drawings for a patient positioner for anterior cervical spine surgery. Nowhere are towel bumps more ubiquitous than in cervical spine surgery. It typically takes at least 20 minutes of anesthesia time for this positioning to be completed, and another few minutes to take it down after the procedure. This time-wasting “dance” is similar for other spinal procedures as well. Your company is well positioned to re-imagine simple devices for the safe positioning of the patient for spinal surgery and I hope we can work together on such projects.
