Texas Health Plano, Texas Back Institute Offer SpineAssist® Surgical Robot for Spine Surgeries
Date:7/28/2010

xas Back Institute a consumer- and physician-referred destination for spine and orthopedic services. The Texas Back Institute is the exclusive training center for physicians learning how to use the SpineAssist® device.

Before her surgery, Tressa had a 60 degree curve in her lower back and a 35 degree curve in her upper back. Now, the curves are balanced at just over 12 degrees each.

"It's remarkable how much difference there is just a day after surgery," said Tressa's mother, Norma Scott. "Her back is so nice and flush."

Scott said she first noticed that her daughter's scoliosis had worsened last summer after Tressa hit a growth spurt.

"She was standing up in the kitchen and I said, 'Tress, why can't you stand up straight?' And she said, 'I am standing up straight,'" Scott said. "I went over to her, and even though her legs were straight, her shoulders were off and her shoulder blade was protruding. It didn't look right."

Scott took Tressa to a Plano physician who referred her to Dr. Lieberman, one of the developers of the SpineAssist® surgical robot. The technology came about after a former patient of Dr. Lieberman's proposed donating a matching grant if he came up with an idea for a new technology to assist in spinal surgeries. Dr. Lieberman developed the idea with a professor from the Technion University in Haifa, Israel. Technion also matched the grant.

"The key to what we do is patient safety and optimizing outcomes," said Dr. Lieberman, who came to Texas Health Plano and the Texas Back Institute from Cleveland Clinic. "That's what this new technology is all about."

In addition to increasing precision, it reduces the amount of radiation
