Hello, Dr. Larry Parker here. I’m very excited to announce that I have invested in the Mazor X Stealth Robotic Guidance Platform for spine surgery! This technology investment supports our continued dedication to provide each of our patients with effective and high-quality surgical care. We choose critical surgical technologies as part of our mission to care for our patients.
With precision and accuracy, the Mazor X System assists me in: spine surgery, lumbar back surgery, minimally invasive back surgery, spinal stenosis surgery, spinal deformity surgery, and more.
What is robotic spine surgery? This guidance system combines image-based pre-operative analytics with intraoperative guidance to create and execute a personalized surgical plan for each patient. With features such as customizable implant selection, optimal implant trajectories, and 3D analytics, planning allows me to make the procedure safe, precise, and predictable. The technology allows for smaller incisions and shorter hospital stays for our patients resulting in minimal downtime.
Today, the Mazor X System is only available at a small number of spine/ortho hospitals across the United States. We are proud to be among the first in offering the latest surgical technology to our patients in order to provide enhanced surgical care.
Surgical Robotics is not the future – it is very much here, at the present time, and we believe it will become the standard of care.
We look forward to transforming spine surgery!
