- Robotics Spine Technique
Southeastern Spine Center has been a leader in minimally
invasive surgery for almost 2 decades.
Spine Center was the first to use the "Spine Assist,"
which was the precursor to the Mazor Renaissance Robot.
This was performed in 2006.
we are pleased to introduce the use of a new minimally invasive
tool. This is the Mazor Robotic Spine Platform. details
Minimally invasive surgery utilizes a wide variety of access techniques,
implants and surgeon skill to essentially make open lumbar spinal
surgery obsolete. Typical open lumbar fusion operations require
that the patient stay in the hospital two to four days and are often
associated with blood transfusions and the use of large amounts
of narcotic pain medications.
minimally invasive approaches--which preserve the muscles in the
midline of the spine--can frequently be done as an outpatient or
as a one-night stay in the hospital. By achieving all of the goals
of an open operation through essentially incisionless surgery, the
pain postoperatively is minimized so that patients can go home early,
take less pain medication, and return to activities sooner.
