FryeCare Orthopedics & Neurosurgery is pleased to offer robotic-assisted, minimally invasive spine surgery. This type of surgery is particularly beneficial for patients with a range of conditions or injuries affecting the column of bones, known as vertebrae, that extend from the neck down to the lower back.
What are the benefits of robotic-assisted technology for the patient?
- Often there is reduced postoperative pain
- Often shorter hospital stays
- Often quicker recovery
How does it work?
The magnified, high-resolution, three-dimensional view the surgeon experiences enables him/her to perform precise and complex surgery through very small surgical incisions, while having total control of the robotic system. The new spine robot is particularly beneficial for patients with a range of conditions or injuries affecting the column of bones, known as vertebrae, that extend from the neck down to the lower back, offering benefits such as reduced postoperative pain, shorter hospital stays and a quicker recovery.
Throughout the procedure, the surgical instruments and any metal implants are continuously displayed on the screen for the surgical team to view in real-time. This improved visualization of the patient’s anatomy allows the surgeon to individualize the surgery to the patient, confirm final implant positioning, and ultimately help the patient return to their daily activities as soon as possible.
