Robotic Spine Surgery

What is Robotic Spine Surgery?

For patients requiring spine surgery who are not candidates for a motion-preserving solution, a stabilizing spine fusion may be required for the best outcome.

In hospitals with leading spine centers, surgeons are now using state-of-the-art robotic spine surgery to increase efficiency, accuracy, and safety for otherwise lengthy and complex procedures.

A spine robot is used in procedures that include posterior screw and rod fixation. On the day of surgery, medical images are taken and imported into the spine robot. These images are used by your surgeon to determine the size and placement of screws and create a surgical plan based on your anatomy. 

The surgical plan guides the rigid robotic arm to a specific region of your spine, similar to a planned route or pathway on a GPS. The surgeon uses this pathway or route to accurately place screws using instruments.

Throughout the procedure, the surgical instruments and implants are continuously displayed on the screen for the surgeon and staff to view during surgery. This display allows the surgeon to view live feedback during your procedure.
