Mazor Robotics is a revolutionary approach to spine surgery that reduces recovery times and dramatically improves patient outcomes. Using this system, the spine care team at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota can perform surgery with increased precision and minimal scarring. What is Mazor Robotics, and what are the benefits of using it for spine surgery? Here is what you need to know.
Mazor Robotics Surgery Overview
There are four stages to spine surgery using the Mazor system. First, spine surgeons use the system’s 3D software to plan the surgery. Each plan is personalized for the patient, so surgery can be tailored precisely to his or her needs. Next, a mount is attached to the patient to ensure complete accuracy. The mount in then synced with the 3D plan and surgical tools are placed in the proper locations with 1.5 mm accuracy. Lastly, the actual surgery takes place, guided by the surgeon’s plan. Only a few incisions are typically required in this minimally-invasive procedure.
Mazor Robotics Surgery Benefits
There are many benefits to spine surgery using the Mazor system. One of the most important benefits is accuracy. Because surgery can be so accurately mapped out before operating begins and because the system itself is so efficient, it removes a great deal of opportunity for error. The minimally-invasive approach also reduces the risk of neurological damage, while the small incisions result in a dramatically faster recovery for patients with less pain than is associated with open spine surgery. Last, but not least, small incisions mean small scars after the surgery.
