An exciting new medical advancement is making minimally invasive surgeries even more beneficial for patients. The DISC Spine Institute is proud to announce Mazor Robotics RenaissanceÂ® Guidance System (MazorX). This robotic surgery using the RenaissanceÂ® Guidance System further improves upon existing minimally invasive surgeries in many ways. Major advantages of MazorX include: an accurate blueprint of the anatomy created in virtual 3D; a completely customized surgical plan before stepping into the operating room; and improved surgical accuracyâ€”up to 1.5 mm.
By using MazorX’s proprietary 3D software, your spinal surgeon is better able to identify challenges and make any necessary adjustments during the preoperative planning stage of your surgery, instead of having to react in the operating room. Having a clear and defined assessment of the anatomy, especially in cases where the line of sight may be minimal, can reduce operative time and increase efficiency during this robotic surgery. Additional benefits to the patient include:
