ExcelsiusGPS® Spine Surgery Robot
What is the procedure?
ExcelsiusGPS® Spine Surgery Robot is a next generation spine surgery robot which combines a rigid robotic arm and full navigation capabilities into an adaptable platform for precise placement in spine surgery. Using ExcelsiusGPS® robotic navigation your surgeon can now place spinal implants with high precision and accuracy than ever before.
Why is it used?
ExcelsiusGPS® Spine Surgery Robot is a revolutionary robotic navigation platform used to perform key spinal procedures such as:
- Transformational Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF)
- Post Scoliosis Correction
- Spondylodiscitis treatment
- High Grade Spondylolisthesis treatment
- Spinal Tumour Excision and Stabilization
- Adult Spinal Deformity Correction with Pelvic Fixation
- C1, C2 Fusion Procedures
- Cervical Decompression with Stabilization
What happens during the procedure?
Prior to the surgery, your surgeon will import your medical images into ExcelsiusGPS® to determine the size and placement of implant and a surgical plan is created. This is further used to guide the rigid robotic arms to a particular region of the spine which is used as a pathway by your surgeon to accurately place the implants using instruments.
During the procedure, the robot guides your surgeon by displaying a live feedback on the screen and this ensures more precise placement of implant.
How long will it take?
The duration of the surgery will depend upon the reason for which you are being operated. Your doctor will explain you in detail, before the surgery. However, due to the detailed pre-operative plan, the surgery time is reduced.
What happens after the procedure?
With the help of ExcelsiusGPS® Spine robotic navigation platform, minimally invasive procedure becomes more precise, minimal incision is required for surgery and less blood loss. All this allows faster healing time and less discomfort to you. Though, recovery time varies from one patient to another, however, within few weeks after your surgery, you will notice that your symptoms and pain are diminishing.
