Robotic Spinal Surgery in Denver
When your neck or back pain is affecting nearly every aspect of your life, your physician may recommend surgical correction. But trusting the delicate and intricate structures of your spine to a surgeon can feel overwhelming. But at OrthoONE Denver, our board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeons and support staff have undergone specialized training and practice so you can rest assured: we’ve got your back.
Our expert spine surgery doctors are using the most advanced surgical techniques, technology and procedures to ensure the highest level of accuracy and precision.
Robot-Guided Navigation for Spine Surgery
Much like the GPS in your car or smartphone, our team uses a highly sophisticated navigation system to assist in many of our surgeries. This GPS-like navigation system first imports detailed medical images into the program. From there, the surgeon and support staff use the technology to create a unique treatment plan based on your specific anatomy and injury or condition. This allows for the highest level of precision, both in planning and in selecting the appropriate implant(s), if needed.
Once the plan is created, the system aids the surgeon throughout the procedure to ensure precise placement of the instruments and implants. Operating through tiny incisions, the surgeon still is able to closely view the procedure through a continuous live-time display, visible to the surgeon and support team.
Our surgeon was the first in Colorado certified to perform spinal procedures with this technology and the first to use the technology for single position lateral spinal surgery. Bringing unmatched experience and skill, our team is using this technology to give patients a new lease on life by increasing accuracy and decreasing complications.
Benefits of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Whenever possible, our team takes a minimally invasive approach to spine surgery. These technique and related technology allow the surgical team to operate through several small incisions using tiny instruments. The benefits of this type of surgery often include:
- reduced blood loss
- fewer complications
- less pain
- shorter hospital stays
- faster return to activity
- minimal scarring
Types of spinal surgery
