Robotic Spinal Surgery

Wollongong Private Hospital offers the latest technology in Neurosurgery with the Mazor Robotics Renaissance Guidance System. As one of only two hospitals in NSW with the Mazor Robotic System, Wollongong Private Hospital delivers patients world leading technology, right here in the Illawarra.

What is the Mazor Robotic Renaissance System?

If you are one of the many that suffer from a debilitating spinal condition including broken vertebra, spinal deformity, spinal weakness, spinal instability or chronic lower back pain, you may be a candidate for spinal surgery with the Mazor Robotic Guidance System.

With guidance from the robotic system, surgeons are able to pre-plan spinal surgery using 3D imaging software, providing surgeons with a unique patient surgical blue print. During the procedure, the robotic system attaches to patient’s spine and guides the surgeon’s tools in accordance with the surgical blueprint, to place implants safely and accurately using minimally invasive techniques.

Benefits of Robotic Spinal Surgery

Surgical treatment of the spine requires planning and precision, and each patient’s anatomy has unique challenges. Surgery with Mazor Robotics Renaissance provides increased safety and precision and in some cases, allows for minimally invasive surgery. Clinical research has shown that benefits to patients can include:

  • Fewer surgical complications
  • Reduced postoperative pain
  • Faster recovery and return to daily activities
  • Fewer intraoperative x-rays resulting in reduced radiation exposure
