Robotic Surgery: Spine
For spine surgery, the Mazor Renaissance™ Guidance system is the latest addition to Spartanburg Medical Center’s extensive computer-assisted surgery program.
- The Mazor system is the only guidance system of its kind to have federal approval from the FDA for spine surgery.
- We’re the first in South Carolina to offer this state-of-the-art technology for spine surgery.
Key advantages to patients and their healthcare team:
- Before surgery, the medical team pre-plans the operation using the specialized Mazor computer software. They take a CT scan with a 3 dimensional (3D) view of the spine. The computer then creates a 3D computer simulation of the patient’s spine that the team then reviews.
- During surgery, the Mazor computer guides the surgeon’s hand and tools to the precise pre-planned location, where the surgeon begins the operation.
