Robotic Spine Surgery
Robotic spine surgery constitutes an innovative, minimally invasive and atraumatic surgical method that is increasingly implemented in the field of spine surgery.
Robotic spine surgery constitutes an innovative, minimally invasive and atraumatic surgical method that is increasingly implemented in the field of spine surgery in recent years for management of various diseases.
Use of robotic system in spine surgery renders conduction of specific relatively composite procedures as spinal fusion feasible via the most technically complete and optimal possible to date way.
Hence, correct placement of spinal screws is now possible, minimizing to fully eliminating the risk of unintended damage to osseous, muscular and, most important, neural structures. Therefore, the risk of postoperative paralysis emergence, which remarkably worries and psychologically influences many patients preoperatively, is practically annihilated. Furthermore, patient is directly postoperatively mobilized and is able to walk within the chamber in the day of surgery (after 6-7 hours), whilst he is capable of walking to out-chamber corridor and being discharged in the first postoperative day with administration of appropriate antibiotics and analgesics.
Robotic spine surgery essentially institutes the current revolution in spine surgery, demonstrating particularly encouraging results especially in cases of spinal stenosis.
