Even in the hands of the most capable, experienced spinal surgeons, the risks associated with spinal surgery and the recovery time needed to heal properly drive many surgeons to utilize robotic technology that will help them to plan more effectively, make smaller incisions, and foster a faster recovery time.

Mazor X Stealth™ Robotic Spine Surgery Explained
Mazor X Spine Surgery implements innovative tools that complement the talents of an experienced surgeon. The result is a procedure with a smaller incision site, a smaller margin for error, and a faster recovery time.
Before the patient even enters the operating room, the Mazor Robotic Spine Surgery system allows the surgeon to create a 3D plan specifically catered to the individual patient. Once surgery begins, a robotic arm extends to hold the surgical instruments steadily in place as the surgeon executes the procedure.
The system also gives the doctor better visibility, which in turn allows him to make more informed decisions as the surgery progresses.
While there are always risks associated with any form of surgery, there are measurable benefits to choosing this type of spinal surgery over traditional spinal surgery. Some of these benefits may include:
- Faster recovery and a shorter hospital stay
- Reduced pain after surgery
- Less exposure to radiation
- Reduced chance of complications
