31 May Robotic Spinal Surgery: The Best 2 Come Together, Healing Through Innovation(Last Updated On: June 21, 2018)
Spinal surgery can be one of the most challenging and risky types of surgery that patients require. The goals of modern spinal surgery are to maximize patient function and accelerate a return to a full life. Robotic Spinal Surgery is one of the latest advances in spinal surgery. Dr. Pattara Kosanunt, specialty in spinal surgery at Vejthani Hospital stated that “This technology is like the magic eye, designed to introduce a much greater degree of accuracy to spinal surgery, thereby reducing the risk of screw misplacement.”
“Using the Robot, the well-experienced surgeon stays in control of the surgery and places the screws with his or her hands while the robot provides a guidance system, increases the degree of precision. Through this technology the scope of error is less than 1 mm in placing screws in spine and the rate of correct screw placement increases to 99.7%.”
How it works
“The robot has the software to conduct pre-operative plan, 3D sync marker to show the images from CT-Scan with a high degree of precision for the operation. During surgery the O-Arm Surgical Imaging System can also be used to check screw placement and ensure that patients receive seamless care from beginning to end. We can say that working together interactions between the well-experienced surgeon, the Robotic Guidance System and the O-Arm Surgical Imaging System will provide the fast and effective procedure that leads to a perfect and successful surgery.” Dr.Pattara said.
Feel free to make an appointment if you are considering having spinal surgery and would like to know if you may be a candidate for the robot.
