4K Video Imaging Platform is a State-of-the-Art Visualization Solution for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

New State-of-the-Art Platform for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery 

Joseph Spine Institute partners with pioneers of emerging spine care technology which brings state-of-the-art procedures to Tampa Bay and to our patients. Offering new hope and a transformative leap forward in spinal surgery.

Dr. Joseph continues to pioneer new techniques for minimally invasive spine surgery by implementing cutting edge techniques and utilizing a brilliant new 4K video imaging and integrated video recording to enhance the spine surgeon’s visualization experience. Viseon’s new 4k video platform, MaxView® 4K, improves surgical efficiency and safety across all minimally invasive spine procedures. 

What is the MaxView® 4k Platform for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?

The MaxView 4K Video Imaging Platform is a state-of-the-art visualization solution for minimally invasive spine surgery that enables spine surgeons to obtain an unobstructed, highly magnified view of the surgical field on a head’s up monitor display. MaxView improves the visualization and operative experience for surgeons and staff during minimally invasive lateral and posterior spine surgery.

The MaxView 4K imaging platform consists of a single-use, retractor-based 4K camera and a reusable 4K Image Control Box (ICB). The technology is designed to be simple to use, streamlining operative efficiency and helping providers acquire new, enabling technology without expensive capital costs.

MaxView 4K Lateral provides visualization for minimally invasive lateral approaches to the spine. The single-use 4K camera mounts proximally to third-party retractors for head’s up visualization of the operative field.

How Does the 4K Camera Platform Help Spine Surgeons?

  • 4K Resolution
    The higher resolution allows the surgeon to see anatomical detail, improve depth perception, and differentiate tissue with 4 times the resolution of standard HD and a wider spectrum of visible color.
  • Real-time Imaging
    Fast processing speed and near zero image latency result in no perceived delay between instrument movements and video displayed.
  • High Magnification
    Digital zoom to 30x magnification with the ability to make fine focus adjustments.
  • Universal 4K Display
    Operate off any 4K surgical monitor display, enabling visualization within a direct line of sight and optimal surgeon ergonomics.
  • Video and Image Capture
    Record 4K video and still images to enhance education, documentation, and case presentations.
  • Retractor-Mounted Camera
    Proprietary design enables a fixed camera placement on the proximal end of retractors to keep the lens free of debris.
  • Tower-less Platform
    Reduce the amount of capital equipment in the operating room and associated costs with the first towerless video platform for spine surgery.
  • Plug and Play System
    Quick and easy to setup and customize the image settings digitally from the hand-held Image Control Box

Dr. Joseph’s Experience with the MaxView® Platform

“Using Viseon’s MaxView® 4k camera, I was able to visualize down a 160mm retractor with great clarity and resolution . Able to spot a large nerve root running across disk space . This prevented a neurological injury. Allowed me to switch back to Sigma TLIF without changing the patients position.”  Dr. Samuel Joseph, Jr.

Surgical Method – Lateral Transpsoas Case Converted to TLIF During Spine Procedure

The procedure was originally an L4-5 prone lateral transpsoas case that was changed intraop due to the Viseon camera picking up the nerve. This then lead to converting to a TLIF during the procedure.


  • Atec Sigma TLIF pedicle based retractors to perform right sided facetectomy and laminectomy.
  • VISEON’s MaxView® 4k camera to confirm decompression.
  • Prone lateral approach with Atec Sigma PTP retractor.

NOTE: Viseon camera was capable of supporting the TLIF with Sigma retractor


Patient went home in less than 24 hours with no deficits.
