Dr. Thomas is part of an international team that just published the largest series in the literature of lateral lumbar Interbody fusion (i.e. LLIF or XLIF) at L4/5. This study of over 500 patients shows a near zero short-term rate of neurological injuries after LLIF with no injuries persisting at one year. Says Dr. Thomas: “this is a landmark study because not only is it the largest study of LLIF in the literature to date, it also clearly shows that the notion that LLIF may be risky at L4/5 is simply not true. This study shows that with proper surgical technique and patient selection, LLIF is in fact the safest way to do a spinal fusion at the L4/5 level.” For more information regarding LLIF visit SpinalConfusion.com or call 910-763-3333 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Thomas’s team.

Thank you Brainlab! We are thrilled and proud to offer some of the most advanced care in the world, facilitated by these cutting-edge technologies.

"Last month, neurosurgeon Jeffrey Beecher, DO and his team at Novant Health New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, North Carolina successfully completed the world’s first implementation of Brainlab Digital O.R. integration technology along with Aesculap (US)’s AEOS Robotic Exoscope in a neurointerventional hybrid operating room. The surgery took place in the medical center's newly constructed Neurointerventional Hybrid O.R. Suite. The procedure was a cranio-orbitozygomatic approach for the exploration of a previously clipped anterior communicating artery aneurysm with intraoperative angiography.

Brainlab Digital O.R. technology serves as a backbone for operating rooms and was used to route video, including the robotic 3D exoscope, to all the monitors, and document the phases of this momentous operation. The suite was custom-built for the Cerebrovascular Neurosurgery and Endovascular Neurosurgery team on staff, and our technology enables them to see the right information at the right time throughout all procedures.

Congratulations to the team!"

Congratulations to Dr. Jeffrey Beecher, who has received Novant Health’s “Guardian Angel” pin in gratitude for his selfless care and treatment towards patients. Dr. Beecher was awarded this honor when an impressed and recovered former patient decided to make a charitable contribution to the Novant Health Foundation, in his name. Thank you, Dr. Beecher, for being a part of our team of professionals.

Dr. Alex Thomas was a lead author in a recently published study regarding “Single-position” anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) and pedicle screw fixation. In this study Single position lateral decubitus Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) and posterior fusion reduces complications and improves perioperative outcomes compared with traditional anterior-posterior lumbar fusion – A multicenter study, published in the most recent issue of The Spine Journal (link to abstract here: https://lnkd.in/eb8cHM-s) there was a dramatic improvement in patient outcomes for patients undergoing lateral single-position surgery (LSPS) at L4/5 and L5/S1 when compared to traditional dual-position cases.

By avoiding patient repositioning between various stages of the case, LSPS allows for significant increases in operating room (OR) efficiency. This translates into less time under anesthesia for the patient, less blood loss and shorter hospital stays. Also, as seen in the study, because of less time under anesthesia and because of less abdominal retraction compared to traditional anterior spinal surgery, patients had much lower incidence of ileus, a significant complication in which the patient’s bowels temporarily stop functioning after surgery. These landmark results were also presented at the North American Spine Society Annual Meeting today in Boston.

Dr. Thomas pioneered the strategy of LSPS at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, NC and teaches the technique to surgeons from around the world. For more information see Atlanticneurosurgery.com or spinalconfusion.com
