Spine supports our entire physical structure therefore problems related to spine can adversely affect all aspects of the body’s normal functioning. Robotic spinal surgery is at present the most accurate and efficient way of treating spinal injury. Ultimate goal of robot guided less invasive spinal surgery is to increase the chances of complete recovery for patients and to have a productive and active lifestyle. Spinal surgery has now evolved and more focus is being placed on minimizing trauma to the body during surgery and perform surgery through the use of minimally invasive techniques. The era of modern spinal surgery has drastically progressed over the past 15 to 20 years as a result of scientific research and advancements which include minimally invasive surgery, genetic testing, next generation spinal implants, stem cell research and the use of biologic agents to promote spinal healing.
The most trusted and approved technology is the Mazor Renaissance Robot which allows both complex and minimally-invasive spine surgery procedures to be carried out with extreme precision, accuracy and efficiency.The robot rotates and bends its arm very smoothly on the spine in specific locations. This movement provides perfect and highly accurate guidance which is very important in ensuring ultimate efficiency and accuracy in the placement of implants. The doctor does all the physical activity involved with only the robot guiding.
Robotic spinal surgery is a procedure which will help facilitate successful outcomes. Among the spine procedures with which it can help include the following.
