A Robotic 3D Spine Blueprinting System
The future of spine surgery is happening now - at Virginia Institute of Robotic Surgery.
Our spine surgeons are transforming spine surgery by advancing surgical techniques from freehand methods to innovative, minimally invasive robotic guided procedures using the Mazor X™. Members of our Virginia Institute of Robotic Surgery performed the first spine procedure using the Mazor X™ in the Mid-Atlantic.
The future of Spine Surgery is Happening Now.
Mazor X™ is used to treat patients suffering from debilitating back pain or limited range of motion caused by spinal deformities and degenerative conditions such as slipped vertebrae, scoliosis, and spinal nerve impingement (pinched nerves). To treat these conditions, surgeons use Mazor X™ in procedures such as placing spinal implants in spinal fusion, injecting bone cement in vertebroplasties, and performing biopsies.
Surgical treatment of the spine requires planning and precision; and each patient's anatomy has unique challenges. Surgery with Mazor X™ enables our surgeons to create a customized 3D blueprint of the surgery before entering the operating room. Our experienced surgeons then make incisions and place implants with the highest level of accuracy and in the exact preplanned location using the Mazor X™ to guide their tools according to the surgical blueprint.
