The Orthopaedic and Spine Institute Offers Robotic Surgery Techniques
Date:8/8/2013

San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) August 08, 2013

The Orthopaedic and Spine Institute (OSI) in San Antonio, Texas now welcomes modern, robotic surgery procedures with the Mazor Spine Robot to their orthopaedic practice. Co-Founder and President, Dr. Steven Cyr, has specifically been introduced to and proctored on robotic spine surgery techniques using the Mazor Spine Robot. Although this type of technology it is used in only a few facilities, there is a proposed benefit that provides surgical guidance for screw placement during instrumentation cases to stabilize the spine. These techniques are based on CT images that are taken prior to surgery.

How exactly does it work? The Mazor robot is mounted to the patient’s pelvis and follows a track along the spine with a positioning arm that places the drill guide in a pre-determined location on the spine where a screw is to be placed. Accuracy is reportedly improved in many instances.

Spine surgery guidance techniques vary, the most popular is using image guidance and special probes to identify the proper insertion point for spinal fixation. Even though these techniques are available, they are not used by the majority of academically trained surgeons who have spent the majority of their practicing years honing their surgical skills for proper screw placement. Dr. Cyr believes, “With time, advancements in these techniques may make them the standard of care.”
