Robotic Innovations in Spine Surgery

In the last decade, robotic spine surgery innovations have optimized and enhanced surgical performance and outcomes. Robotic developments in spine surgery have improved safety, accuracy, and efficacy. Today's minimally invasive procedures involve smaller incisions and faster healing times, giving patients quality of life more quickly.

With the use of robots, repetitive tasks are performed with precision, and reduce fatigue-related errors occur, resulting in better outcomes for patients. Using robotics in minimally invasive surgery reduces the exposure to radiation for the patient, surgeon, and staff in the operating room.

Robotic innovations in minimally invasive surgery offer many benefits to patients, including:

  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Smaller incisions, resulting in reduced risk of infection
  • Shorter hospitalization
  • Reduced blood loss and transfusions
  • Minimal scarring
  • Faster recovery times and return to daily activities

Studies demonstrate that minimally invasive surgery leads to less pain and tissue trauma, allowing for improved postoperative immune function with a quicker return to work1. The use of robotics in spinal surgery allows the surgeon to work in a much smaller space. With smaller incisions, there is less disruption of muscle and tissues.

Minimally invasive robotic surgery combines the benefits of minimally invasive surgery with advanced robotic technology to allow surgeons to perform a broader range of procedures with greater precision and dexterity. The use of robotics in spine surgery has allowed surgeons to see greater detail while manipulating surgical tools in ways that human hands cannot
