Cabell Huntington Hospital Adds Mazor X Stealth Edition Robotic Guidance Spinal Surgery Platform
Mazor X Stealth™ Edition Robotic Guidance Platform, is the latest extension of the Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH) Back and Spine Center. CHH is the first in the Tri-State to offer this state-of-the-art technology for spine surgery.
Acquiring the platform is part of a continuous commitment to delivering the highest quality care for patients, ensuring that they receive the best treatment possible.
The platform integrates and streamlines three complex processes:
- image-based 3D planning of surgery,
- intra-operative precision of robotic guidance,
- and quality visualization with Stealth Navigation.
Before entering the operating room, surgeons use the 3D function to plan an optimal surgery in a CT-based 3D simulation of the patient’s spine. In addition, computer analytics provide the surgeon with pre-operative data for procedure planning and intra-operative guidance during the procedure. Using these technologies, the surgeon can operate with precision, efficiency and confidence.
“This ground-breaking technology allows us to see exactly where the patient requires surgery before making the first incision,” said Nicolas Phan, MD, neurosurgeon at CHH and associate professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. “This platform enables us with both accuracy and minimally-invasive approaches for spine procedures.”
The platform allows surgeons pre-operative assessment and intra-operative precision to enable better patient outcomes.
