Brandon Regional Hospital Pioneers Mazor X™ Robotic Spine Surgery
BRANDON, Fla. (July 13, 2017) — Brandon Regional Hospital is the first in the region to add the Mazor X™ robotic system to its Spine Center. The Mazor X system combines unprecedented pre-operative planning tools and analytics with unparalleled intra-operative guidance, giving Brandon Regional Hospital patients the most advanced spinal surgery options available.
The benefits of minimally-invasive procedures include less pain, less blood loss, smaller incisions, shorter hospitalizations and shorter recovery time for patients. Smaller incisions usually pose a challenge to surgeons due to the limited view of the anatomy. The Mazor X system helps to overcome this challenge with a 3D comprehensive surgical plan and analytics that gives the surgeon unprecedented information before the surgery even starts. This results in greater precision, efficiency and confidence.
“Minimally invasive spine surgery has enormous benefits for patients, but as a physician you are working with smaller incisions, and that results in a lack of direct line-of-vision, and can require more intraoperative X-rays to compensate,” says Tien Le,M.D., a fellowship-trained spinal neurosurgeon on staff at Brandon Regional Hospital. “The Mazor X™ robotic guidance system removes this necessity, providing patients with the best possible clinical results.”
