Cutting edge medical technology continues to expand in your community with the addition of our advanced spine surgery robot to our orthopedic services, allowing for safer, minimally invasive procedures with better outcomes and shorter hospital stays.
How does it work?
- Our system combines robotics and navigation, much like a GPS in a car, giving our surgeons clearer images than the simple x-rays used at other hospitals.
- These images, taken on the day of surgery, allow our doctors to determine exactly where to position implants by using the "route" mapped out by the robot.
What does “minimally Invasive” mean?
With more precise information, our surgeons can perform safer procedures, with a number of patient benefits:
- Smaller incisions
- Less pain
- Lower risk of infection
- Shorter hospital stays
- Quicker recovery time
- Less scarring
- Reduced blood loss
