WHAT IS ROBOTIC ASSISTED SPINE SURGERY?


 
 

Robotic Assisted Spine Surgery

 

Spine surgery can be a scary prospect for a lot of patients. Newer technologies are available that help with providing a guidance system for surgeons when placing instrumentation. This is similar to GPS guidance when driving a car. The surgeon is still making the final decisions, but the robotic assistance provides additional accuracy and ease of use. Minimally-invasive surgery with robotic assisted technology provides the benefits of faster recovery, reduced post-operative pain, lowered complication rates, and increased accuracy.
