Job Description

Job Description

META Dynamic Inc. offers an exciting and unique opportunity to provide on-site support in the operating room for Neuro, Ortho and ENT surgeons. As a Surgical Navigation Clinical Specialist, you will play a vital role in assisting surgeons during complex surgical procedures involving the brain, spine or sinus. Your responsibility will be to operate a neurosurgical navigation system (GPS-like equipment for the body) to provide accurate, real-time guidance during surgical procedures. This allows the surgeon to improve precision and safety during these intricate surgeries and achieve better patient outcomes.

A Day in the Life

Preparation: The day typically begins early (often 6:00 a.m.) but can start later depending on the hospital’s schedule. Prior to the surgery, the clinical specialist loads and reviews the MRI and/or CT scans and performs the preoperative planning for the procedure. Our specialists work closely with the surgical team, including nurses, anesthesiologists, and operating room technicians to prepare for the day's procedure(s).

Surgery: The primary focus of a clinical specialist's day is assisting with the navigation guidance during surgeries. This allows the surgeons to see in real-time where their instruments are in the patient’s body by using an overlay on the 3D images of the patient's anatomy. Procedures may include brain tumor resections, epilepsy surgeries, deep brain stimulation (DBS) implantations, spinal fusions, or sinus procedures.

End of Day: After the surgical procedure, our specialists ensure the equipment is cleaned and put away. This includes the instruments and the trays associated with the instruments. Depending on the day's surgical schedule, our experts may also provide assistance in other navigated surgeries within the current facility or at different locations. This role demands adaptability due to its ever-changing schedule.
