Carolinas Center for Surgery in Jacksonville, North Carolina, with investment from Onslow Memorial Hospital spine surgery has obtained a Mazor X™ Stealth Edition robotic guidance platform. This state-of-the-art system combines advanced software, robotic technology, navigation, and instrumentation to help your surgeon deliver high-quality care.
The Mazor X™ Stealth supports our commitment to accurate and precise trajectory guidance for surgical procedures. This platform gives us an algorithm to look beyond individual pedicles to construct, design, and provide us with cutting-edge robotic and navigation technology to achieve our surgical goals.
What This Means for Our Patients
Better Surgical Planning
Planning is the foundation for the Mazor X™ robotic guidance system. It provides our spinal surgeon, Dr. Guirgues, with the insight on what he would like to achieve, taking under consideration the needs of each patient. The power of this platform is a preoperative planning suite with 3D analytics and tools that allows him to work towards construct optimization.
Less Blood Loss and Faster Recovery
Once the plan has been created, Dr. Guirgues uses the technology from the Mazor X™ to help execute that plan. The software guides the surgical arm into position, allowing for greater precision. This technology is designed to create precise, predictable results. Patients will experience less blood loss and faster recovery times as a result.
3D Imaging for Lower X-Ray Exposure
Dr. Guirgues is continually looking for real-time reconciliation of his work based on the surgical plan. Built-in navigation with the Mazor X™ platform provides him with the visibility he needs to confirm this part of the process. Sophisticated 3D analytics and virtual tools allow him to determine procedural goals and create a “surgical blueprint” prior to each case. This means fewer X-rays and less radiation exposure for patients.
Proven Results Based on Experience
The Mazor X™ Stealth Edition is a third-generation surgical robotic guidance system and eighth-generation navigation system. In its first year, the platform was used in more than 1,000 procedures in more than 50 hospitals in the United States. Since its inception, this technology has been used in more than 100,000 procedures.
