There are many different reasons why a patient may need spine surgery. Disease, aging, and trauma are all common reasons that result in a patienting seeking out this medical option.

At the Institute for Robotic Surgery, our surgeons evaluate each patient on an individual basis to consider the best option. Many types of spine surgery such as discectomy, laminectomy, vertebroplasty, and spinal fusion can be performed on patients who do not respond well to non-surgical treatments.

With the assistance of robotic technology at the Institute for Robotic Surgery, surgeons are able to perform minimally-invasive spinal procedures with smaller incisions, improved accuracy, less risk for complications, and shorter hospital stays, leading to faster recovery time for patients returning to their active lifestyles faster.
