Robotic spine surgery is a form of minimally invasive spine surgery. If you are experiencing chronic back pain that is unresponsive to non-surgical treatment, you may be a candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery in conjunction with the ExcelsiusGPS™ spinal surgery system.
Operating room processes have seen unprecedented technological advances over the previous several years, increasingly harbored by the use of robotics in medical device applications. Spine surgery is no different, and surgeons have witnessed increased use by robots. Perhaps the most convincing proposal to use robots arises from their efficiency in the trajectory of robotic-assisted screw. In medical facilities, typically in spine fusion, scoliosis correction surgery, vertebroplasty, and spinal biopsies, there is an increasing demand for spine surgery robots. Some other convincing proposals supporting the use of spine surgery robots in the healthcare industry are improved performance mapping and customization of treatment.
Applications of robotics have demonstrated utility across a wide spectrum of surgical specialties . Still, robotic surgery is in its nascent stages in the field of spinal surgery. Recent literature pertaining to the application of robotics in spinal instrumentation has revealed that robotics has the potential to revolutionize this aspect of spinal surgery in terms of better accuracy rates for screw placements, decreased operative time, less fluoroscopic exposure to the surgical team, and possible more conversion to minimally invasive techniques.

Powered by the vast strides in robotics technology, the global spine surgery robots market will see an exciting growth trajectories in the next few years. To put things in perspective, the global market is projected to reach a worth of US$320 million by the end of 2026.
The drive arises from robotics adoption to decrease the duration of hospitalization, decrease complications, and increase patient population comfort. In addition, spine surgery robots hold excellent promise in complementing surgeon’s knowledge in complicated surgery, where they can be a significant advocate in surgical results.
