Spinal Fusion Surgeries
In most spinal fusion surgeries, the surgeon places screws into the bones of the spine to provide fixation and stability. Traditionally, these are placed freehand or with X-ray guidance.
Despite careful technique, there is a chance of implants being placed in an inaccurate position - posing a risk to the spinal cord, spinal nerves or other structures.
Robotic Spinal Surgery uses modern computer technology to increase the accuracy of screw placement - increasing safety. This technology can be used in both open and minimally invasive spinal fusion surgeries.
