MINIMALLY INVASIVE SPINE SURGERY WITH ROBOTIC TECHNOLOGY
What is Robotic Spine Surgery?
Robotic spine surgery, or robot-assisted spine surgery, describes the use of robotic technology to assist with guidance during spinal neurosurgery.
Traditionally, neurosurgeons have placed instrumentation in the spine “freehand,” relying on their knowledge of anatomy and on X-rays. They must maintain steady hands as they operate near important nerves in small corridors—especially with today’s minimally invasive procedures, which involve much smaller incisions. Spine surgery can also be long and laborious, making neurosurgeons susceptible to mental and physical fatigue.
Robotic-assisted surgeries will significantly improve surgical outcomes of complex surgeries due to an advanced level of precision. One of the fears in spine surgery is an adverse result due to the misplacement of screws. These complications can now be eliminated to a great extent through robotic spine surgery by placing screws accurately and faster with the most desired outcomes.
What is robotic spine surgery used for?
Robotic systems have been used successfully in the following spine procedures:
- Anesthetic block for nerve pain
- Correction of spinal deformities
- Minimally invasive anterior, lateral, and posterior fusion
- Minimally invasive decompression
- Revision surgery after previous surgeries for conditions such as spondylolisthesis, stenosis, spondylolysis, vertebral fractures, and osteomyelitis
- Spinal fusion
- Tumor resection
- Vertebroplasty for compression fractures in the spine
Most Advanced Robotic Spine Surgery System of India is Now Available at Keshlata Hospital, Bareilly
With an objective to revolutionise technology-driven medical advancements in the country, Keshlata Hospital, Bareilly introduced most advanced Integrated Robotic System for Spine Surgery.
This technology is the most advanced software platform designed to increase the safety and accuracy of spine surgery and provides support to the spine surgical suite where precision and accuracy are key factors for best outcomes.
The technology utilises artificial intelligence to visualise spinal anatomy during complex surgeries.
In today ‘s advanced medical times, robotic spinal surgeries are the safest route for procedures that require extreme precision and accuracy. They not only promise positive outcomes but also involve minimal complications throughout the surgery.
Additionally, this is the only robotic system that combines surgical navigation and robotic guidance for spinal surgery, which offers significant advantages to spine surgeons. The system has been designed to facilitate procedural efficiency. Robotic Surgeries make the procedure more objective as its more plan-driven.
