Robotic Spine Surgery
Singing River Health System and Bienville Orthopaedic Specialists performed the very first robotic navigation spine surgery in the state of Mississippi. Combining the benefits of navigation and robotics in one technology, this device enables even the most complex, delicate procedures to be performed through very small incisions with unmatched precision.
The Advanced Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Now Available at Singing River Health System
The ExcelsiusGPS™ Spine Robot brings the latest in technology and provides an even greater level of precision to spinal surgery. The Robotic-assisted surgery puts the surgeon’s hands at the controls of a robotic platform so refined that even the most complex, delicate procedures can be performed through very small incisions with unmatched precision.
The Globus ExcelsiusGPS™ Spine Robot is used for conditions that require spinal fusion, including degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, fractures, and spinal tumors. Patients with these conditions often suffer with debilitating symptoms like:
- Low Back Pain
- Leg Pain
- Uneven Legs, Hips, or Shoulders
- Abnormal Gait
- Breathing Difficulties from Ribcage Pressure on Lungs
Benefits of the ExcelsiusGPS™
Screw Placement Accuracy
With GPS, our surgeons can pre-plan where screws will be placed as well as their trajectories. By having accurate, pre-planned screw installation, the surgery is much less traumatic to the patient and allows for less pain and a faster recovery.
Reducing Radiation Exposure
The 3D camera system allows for continuous imaging of the patient without the need to have repeated CT scans. This reduces overall radiation exposure than other methods.
Shorter Operation Time
With fast imaging, precise placement of screws, and with GPS guiding the surgical team, operations are being conducted more quickly and more smoothly.
