Spinal Surgery


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.
