Surgical treatment of the spine requires careful planning because each patient’s anatomy has unique challenges. At Baptist Health, we create the ideal procedure for your specific condition and needs.

Our Approach to Robotic Spine Surgery

With robotic spine surgery, specially trained spine surgeons use advanced 3D planning software before entering the operating room to create the ideal procedure for each patient’s condition. In the operating room, the surgeon is guided by a unique surgical blueprint to place the implants safely and accurately using minimally invasive techniques, whenever possible.

The goal of robotic spine surgery is to relieve back pain and improve quality of life by stabilizing the bones and joints in the spine and relieving pressure on spinal nerves.

What are the Benefits of Robotic Spine Surgery?

The surgeon uses a much smaller incision than in conventional (“open”) surgical treatment options, which can reduce the trauma to the muscles and soft tissue of the back and potentially provide the patient with a variety of benefits:

  • Better cosmetic results with reduced scar tissue from small incision
  • Faster recovery time for returning to daily activities
  • Increased accuracy with less radiation
  • Less post-operative pain and reliance on pain medications
  • Lower complication rates
  • Minimal blood loss from surgery and reduced need for transfusions
  • Reduced risk of damage to healthy tissue or infection
  • Reduced pain

Am I a good candidate for robotic spine surgery?

Whether robotic surgery is the best solution for you depends on a number of factors, including your diagnosis, severity and availability. Our doctors will walk you through your treatment options recommend the best procedure to fit your needs and best outcome.
