SONSA now offers MazorX Robotic Technology
SONSA and Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center are the first spine surgeons and hospital
in Oregon to use robotics for spine surgery.
MazorX is robotic technology that enhances surgical precision and improves surgical outcomes for patients. Minimally-invasive spine surgery using Mazor X can help people with serious spine problems such as herniated discs, vertebral fractures, traumatic spine injury, degenerative disc disease, spinal weakness or instability, slipped disc (spondylolisthesis) and narrowing of the spinal canal (stenosis).
As with other robotic surgical devices, Mazor X does not perform actual surgeries on its own. Instead, its software provides surgeons with information and anatomical images of the patient’s spine to create a surgical plan — a 3-D blueprint of the operation — that is previewed with the patient. In the operating room using that blueprint, Mazor X robotic technology helps guide the surgeon through the operation with more accuracy than traditional surgery.
Benefits to you
Compared to traditional spine surgery, minimally-invasive surgery using Mazor X technology:
- Reduces postoperative pain
- Enables faster recovery
- Increases surgical accuracy
- Lowers complication rates
How it works
Pre-Operative Analytics Tools
These tools help create a complete surgical plan as part of a total patient treatment strategy.
Precision mechanics and a surgical arm guide the surgical tools and implants according to the Pre-Op Analytics surgical plan. Along with tracking and imaging, the Intra-Operative Guidance helps verify predictable execution of the surgical plan.
Intra-Operative Verification Tools
Verification enables comparison of the plan versus actual surgical performance, using intra-operative imaging tools and tracking technology.
