The Future of Spine Surgery is Happening Now – at Johnston-Willis Hospital.
When your physician indicates that part of your treatment plan includes spinal surgery, you’re likely worried about the risks involved in a surgery that requires extreme precision. Thankfully, spinal surgery techniques have evolved extensively over the last decade, minimizing the risks of such a delicate procedure. The spine surgeons at Johnston-Willis Hospital are leading the way by advancing surgical techniques from freehand methods to innovative, minimally invasive robotic guided procedures using Mazor X™ surgical assurance platform.
Johnston-Willis Hospital is able to provide our patients the latest tools for increased precision in minimally invasive spine surgery, thanks to Mazor Robotics. Get back to a healthier you today by choosing the experienced spine surgeons at Johnston-Willis Hospital.
Spinal surgeries Mazor can be used for:
The Mazor X system is used in the treatment of many spinal conditions including degenerative spinal conditions, spine tumors and spinal deformities. Consult a Johnston-Willis Hospital spinal surgeon today to learn how Mazor can potentially help the condition you suffer from.
How Mazor Works
Surgical treatment of the spine requires planning and precision; and each patient's anatomy has unique challenges. Surgery with Mazor X system enables our surgeons to create a customized 3D blueprint of the surgery before entering the operating room. Our experienced surgeons then make incisions and place implants with the highest level of accuracy and in the exact preplanned location using the Mazor to guide their tools according to the surgical blueprint.
Patient Benefits of Using the Mazor X System
The Mazor X system takes spine procedures to the next level with its consistent accuracy and enables minimally-invasive surgery by replacing the surgeon’s need for a direct field-of-view with a surgical guidance system. Independent scientific research has shown that minimally-invasive surgery with Mazor Robotics:
- Increases surgical accuracy
- Lowers complication rates
- Reduces postoperative pain
- Aids in faster recovery with a quicker return to daily activities when compared to open, freehand surgeries.
Our job is to get you back on the road to recovery. And with the use of robotic technology, like Mazor, we’re able to do just that.
