Spinal Robotic Assisted Navigational Surgery at Wessex Hospital
We are proud to offer our spinal patients ExcelsiusGPS®, the world’s first technology to combine a rigid robotic arm and full navigation capabilities, designed to improve safety and accuracy.
How Does ExcelsiusGPS® Work?
ExcelsiusGPS® is designed to improve accuracy and optimize patient care by using robotics and navigation, much like a GPS in your car.
On the day of surgery medical images are taken and imported into ExcelsiusGPS®. The surgeon uses these images to determine the size and placement of implants and creates a patient plan based on your anatomy. This is used to guide the rigid robotic arm to a specific region of your spine, similar to a planned route or pathway on a GPS. The surgeon uses this pathway or route to accurately place the implants using instruments.
Throughout the procedure, the surgical instruments and implants are continuously displayed on the screen for the surgeon and staff to monitor. This display allows the surgeon to view live feedback during your procedure for more precise implant placement.
