Dr. Mesfin Lemma, spine surgeon at MedStar Orthopaedic Institute, recently became the first in the world to perform minimally invasive spine surgery using the Excelsius3D 3-in-1 intelligent imaging system.

Because it shows real-time video in 3D, it allows us to do the surgery more precisely and more minimally invasively.

Consolidating cone-beam CT, fluoroscopy, and digital radiography into a single unit eliminates the need for multiple imaging devices. This can save time during the procedure, which means less time under anesthesia for our patients.

Dr. Mesfin is the son of professor Aklilu Lemma, who was a renowned Ethiopian pathobiologist. In 1989, he was awarded the Right Livelihood Award “for discovering and campaigning relentlessly for an affordable preventative against bilharzia.”
