Toward the end of the 20th century, robots made their appearance in the medical world – forever changing the way neurosurgeons and other medical professionals conduct surgery. With more advanced technology assisting medical experts, patients reap benefits such as reduced operative time, decreased risk, customized surgical plans, and more.

Today, we are excited to announce the Mazor X technology, a robotic-assisted spinal surgical platform, will soon be coming to Georgia Neurosurgical Institute’s very own surgery center! Let’s take a look at how it works and why it’s so important:

Mazor X Technology

The Mazor X technology is primarily used by neurosurgeons when spine surgery is necessary. This technology is innovative and minimally invasive, which dramatically reduces operative time and accelerates recovery time.

Before the Mazor X technology is used, your neurosurgeon plans the surgery on a computer before the surgery takes place. During this planning period, the neurosurgeon will determine where the Mazor X should place the surgical instrument. By using GPS-like technology, the Mazor X will place the instrument exactly where it should be based on the customized surgical plan.

Patients who need lumbar fusions or surgery for spinal tumors or fractures can benefit from this technology.
