We are proud to now offer minimally invasive spinal surgery using the ExcelsiusGPS® robotic system.

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.

Why choose Nuffield Health Wessex Hospital for your robotic-arm assisted surgery?

Investment in the latest technology

The ExcelsiusGPS® is a prime example of how we proactively keep up to date with new innovations in surgery and regularly invest in new technology for diagnostics, surgery and care.
