exposure during surgery. For patients, it means less likelihood of infection, less pain after surgery, fewer complications, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery. The technology has been used in just over 1,000 cases worldwide with no instances of nerve damage as a result of surgery.

"We are thrilled to be among the pioneers to adopt this leading edge technology," said Sara Misuraca, program director of the Scoliosis & Spine Tumor Center at Texas Health Plano. "We envision this technology as ushering a new era in spine surgeries, the same way laparoscopies transformed general surgery in the 1990s."

"The SpineAssist® surgical robot is yet another example of Texas Back Institute's long history of bringing the most advanced medical technologies to the operating room," said Trish Bowling, chief executive officer, Texas Back Institute. "Beyond treating patients, training surgeons and fostering innovations are cornerstones of our practice."

Back pain is the leading cause of disability in Americans ages 19-45, affecting 80 percent of Americans at some point during their lifetime. It is the second most common reason that people miss work.

SpineAssist® technology has two key components: A workstation that enables surgeons to pre-plan procedures in 3D based on the patient's individual anatomy, creating a "surgical blueprint," and a robotic arm that guides the surgeon during the procedure using the preoperative plan.

During surgery, the robot's extension arm guides the surgeon to the pre-planned location with utmost accuracy, allowing the surgeon to operate through small incisions in the skin and underlying muscles in order to reach the exact pre-planned location on the spine. Most procedures utilizing the robot are minimally invasive. F
