The company said that the system delivers omnidirectional light and is a "universal 'drop-in' illuminator" that can be seamlessly placed in the disc space that is being worked upon by the surgeons without causing any heat in the surrounding tissues.

"The Waveguide XT System is the latest device in our growing photonics-based portfolio designed to bring back this critical sense. In the future, our technology platform will continue to expand into additional modalities to address some of the most significant unmet clinical needs in minimal access surgery," said a statement by Invuity Chief Executive Officer Philip Sawyer.
