The Next Generation

of Surgical Navigation

 

Scapa Flow provides a unique platform for surgical navigation through the innovative use of software. Applications built by Scapa Flow allow the surgeon to perform surgery with a greater degree of safety and confidence, thereby improving patient outcomes.

 Scapa Flow also holds several patents for surgical instruments.

Never content to sit still, we are continuously pushing the envelope of technology to advance the practice of surgery as well as improve patient’s lives.


 

Our history

Scapa Flow, LLC is a privately held company founded in 2004 by John Dorman, M.D., a board certified neurosurgeon, in Midland Texas. In addition to developing software, Dr. Dorman maintains a full time neurosurgical practice, performing complex spine surgeries as well as other procedures.

Innovation was initially focused on the development of surgical instruments and their uses. We hold several patents, both design and method, for these instruments.

In 2012 our focus shifted to software development. Since that time we have developed surgical navigation platforms designed to be used during surgery. 

These platforms allow the surgeon to plan the placement and trajectory of spinal instrumentation as well as safely guide them in the placement of the implants.
