Distribution Partnership between GE Healthcare & DePuy Synthes In The United States

GE HealthCare and DePuy Synthes, the Orthopaedics Company of Johnson & Johnson, have formed a distribution partnership in the United States. This collaboration aims to make GE HealthCare’s OEC 3D Imaging System and DePuy Synthes’ extensive product portfolio more accessible to surgeons and patients. By combining advanced imaging technology with comprehensive orthopedic solutions, GE HealthCare demonstrates its ongoing commitment to supporting clinicians in complex spine procedures and delivering exceptional patient care.

The human spine is a vital and intricate structure comprising muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, and delicate nerves. Spinal injuries or deformities can impact various parts of the body, severely restricting mobility and diminishing quality of life. Accurate diagnosis and treatment of such complex conditions heavily rely on visualization and imaging techniques to ensure the best possible outcomes for patients.

GE HealthCare’s OEC 3D Imaging System is specifically designed to enhance surgical imaging precision and efficiency, thereby enhancing the 3D imaging experience in spine procedures conducted in surgical suites. This mobile CBCT imaging solution, known as the OEC 3D surgical imaging C-arm, facilitates intraoperative 3D volumes and high-definition 2D imaging over a wide anatomical field of view. With its precise 3D volumetric images, familiar OEC 2D imaging capabilities, and additional features like image analysis, noise reduction, interoperative review, and seamless workflow, the OEC 3D C-arm enables clinicians to gain a comprehensive understanding of the surgical situation.

As the demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures continues to rise, and ambulatory surgery centers perform a significant portion of outpatient procedures in the United States1, there is a growing need for efficient imaging capabilities. This new distribution agreement between GE HealthCare and DePuy Synthes aims to meet the demands of surgeons and address the complex requirements of patients undergoing various spinal procedures.

Phil Rackliffe, President & CEO of GE Healthcare’s Image-Guided Therapies business, expressed his confidence in the OEC 3D technology, emphasizing its wide field of view, open platform, and high-quality reconstructed 3D images. Through the collaboration with DePuy Synthes, GE HealthCare looks forward to expanding the adoption of this groundbreaking technology in spine practices, from acute care settings to outpatient facilities. By providing precise and efficient imaging solutions, the OEC 3D system allows surgeons to concentrate on delivering quality patient care.
