Robotic technology for spine surgery

The Spine Care Center at Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center offers the latest technology in minimally invasive robotic surgery to patients in Panama City, surrounding Bay County communities and beyond.

Using the Mazor X(tm) Robotic Guidance Platform, the surgeon can develop a comprehensive surgical plan and visual outline of the procedure prior to and during surgery. Our robotic spine surgery system features a sophisticated 3D virtual tool developed to accurately determine procedure goals and a surgical plan, creating a unique “surgical blueprint” of the patient’s spine prior to the procedure. Then, using robotic navigation and stabilization firmly affixed to the patient's body, our spine specialists can perform the most precise, efficient surgical procedures.

The use of robotic technology for spine surgery results in safer surgery and high-quality outcomes. The robotic system ensures accuracy and limits the amount of radiation to the patient as well as the surgical team. Patients may experience smaller incisions, reduced blood loss, less pain, lower risk of infection and faster recovery.
