Optimize Accuracy in Spinal Surgeries with Robotic Spine Surgery

Optimize Accuracy in Spinal Surgeries with Robotic Spine Surgery
There has been a dramatic evolution of the surgical procedures involving the spine with the most significant being the robot-assisted spine surgery. The Freehold robotic surgery team at NJ Spine and Wellness utilizes robot-assisted surgery techniques to ensure accuracy when performing spinal surgery.

What is robotic spine surgery?

Robotic spine surgery refers to a state-of-art technology that allows surgeons to conduct complex surgical procedures on your spine, such as spinal fusion. The robot is given instructions by the surgeon and cannot act without instructions. NJ Spine and Wellness utilizes robotic-assisted spine surgery to ensure dexterity and accuracy, producing excellent results. Robotic spine surgery is an emerging technology that uses advanced imaging technology to provide accurate images. The surgeons at NJ Spine and Wellness use the virtual images from CT (computed tomography) scans to design a pre-surgical plan for you. The details from your CT scans and the expected outcome of the surgery determine the basis of the surgical layout. The team then feeds this plan into the robot's computer to produce more detailed and accurate visuals of your anatomy. Robotic spine surgery is particularly effective for problems, such as scoliosis (abnormal sideways curvature of the spine), complex revision surgery, and lower back pain.

How can you benefit from robotic spine surgery?

Robotic spine surgery is especially beneficial to patients seeking relief from spinal conditions in that it ensures safer navigation and is highly accurate, guaranteeing excellent results. Some of the benefits of robot-assisted spine surgery as suggested by Dr. Lindsay Clark include:

·                     Reduced blood loss

·                     A reduced hospital stay period

·                     Minimal scarring

·                     Less tissue damage

·                     Lower chances of infection

·                     Less postoperative pain

·                     Speedier recovery

Robot-assisted spine surgery exceeds the skills of even the most renowned surgeons. The team at NJ Spine and Wellness recognizes this excellent technology that makes even the most complex surgeries easier. If you're looking for a safe and most effective treatment for spinal conditions, such as scoliosis, robotic spine surgery should be your ultimate choice.

Why should you consider robotic spine surgery?

During your visit to NJ Spine and Wellness, your provider may perform a comprehensive physical exam to determine the extent of your back problem. If other treatments prove futile, your provider may recommend robotic spinal surgery. In most cases, patients with spinal conditions usually benefit from treatments such as physical therapy, medications, and chiropractic. These treatments provide relief from pain and discomfort while restoring mobility. In case the pain persists, the team may offer advanced treatments, such as spinal cord stimulations, steroid injections, and radiofrequency ablation.

If the symptoms persist, your provider may now recommend spine surgery. Before the procedure, the surgeon gives you a general anesthetic to prevent you from experiencing any pain. Not everyone is eligible for robotic spine surgery, and it may not perform all types of spinal surgery, but there has been a tremendous improvement in this technology.
