Does your spine practice need a robot? Is it even feasible? Learn more about the advantages and disadvantages of robotic-assisted spine surgery, and how to evaluate and choose a robot model.
Robotic-assisted spinal surgery is used for posterior instrumented fusions in which screws are implanted in the bones of the back. Indications for screw insertion include fusion surgery in the low back, mid-back, or neck. Robotic guidance systems may also be used for the surgical correction of scoliosis or kyphosis.
