We offer innovative treatments such as minimally invasive spine surgery, disk replacement surgery, microvascular decompression, and awake craniotomy. We are also recognized for our extensive experience in microvascular decompression for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia. Most procedures are performed as outpatient or as short 23 hour hospital stays; minimizing complications and providing shorter recovery time.

Airo® Mobile Intraoperative CT


The Airo® Mobile Intraoperative CT is a 32-slice CT scanner that can produce high-resolution images at any point during surgery. This allows our neurosurgeons to update navigation, view detailed anatomical structures, and evaluate their surgical performance in real-time. By verifying their work at multiple stages during the procedure they are able to maintain high levels of surgical accuracy and precision, patient safety, and clinical success. In addition, the ability to make corrective actions while the patient is still in the operating room reduces reoperation rates and overall surgical costs.

The Airo can be used in cranial, spinal, or trauma surgeries. Its design lends itself to use in minimally invasive surgical techniques by providing convenient imaging, navigation, and adjustable patient positioning.


In just 30 seconds, the Airo can scan 50cm in diameter and 100cm in length, encompassing the entire length of the spine, from the skull to the sacrum.


The images are reassembled and sent to brain lab navigation equipment or the hospitals Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS). The Airo automatically registers the navigation equipment for tracking by using gantry markers that align the circular structure of the Airo.

Patient Positioning

The rotating patient table can be easily exchanged for either a carbon flat or a articulating multi-sectional table which assists our neurosurgeon in finding their preferred treatment positioning.

  • Intraoperative functionality

  • High-quality diagnostic imaging in real-time (about 30 seconds) using a 32-slice CT scanner

  • Reduced re-operation rates

  • Less-invasive surgical procedure

  • Reduced trauma

  • Faster recovery times

  • Shorter hospital stays

  • Automatic image registration

  • Less scatter radiation

  • Adjustable Radiation Dosage

  • Rotating carbon flat or articulating multi-sectional table for preferred treatment positioning

  • Large Field of View (51.2cm)

  • Large Bore Diameter (107cm)

  • Scan length (100cm from skull to the sacrum)

Common neurological conditions that are treated with the Airo Mobile Intraoperative CT include:

  • Astrocytomas
  • Brain Tumors
  • Brain Tumor Biopsy
  • Glioblastomas
  • Kyphosis (Cervical and Thoracic)
  • Meningiomas
  • Metastases
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Spinal Fractures
  • Spinal Metastasis
  • Spinal Tumors
  • Scoliosis
  • Spondylolisthesis (Instability of the spine)

Patient Positioning

You will come into the operating room and the surgical staff and anaesthesiologist will prepare you for surgery. The medical team places you into position on the operating table once you are asleep.


Planning and Navigation

The image guided surgery system integrated with Airo for surgical navigation creates a 3D image of any CT and/or MRI scans taken earlier. Your surgeon uses these images to plan the surgical approach. 


Intraoperative Imaging

Throughout the surgical procedure, the surgeon will decide when an intraoperative CT scan will be taken. The Airo CT scanner will slide over you on the table, scanning for less than one minute.


Updating Navigation

The most recent intraoperative CT scans are automatically registered to the image guided surgery system. This creates a new 3D image showing the up-to-date status of the surgery. The images are immediately made available to your surgeon to help determine if further surgical action is needed. 


Patient Record

The intraoperative images taken during surgery are made available to your patient record for reference of the surgical outcome.
