RESTON, VA–(Marketwired – February 02, 2017) – The award-winning spine surgeons at Virginia Spine Institute are the first in the Mid-Atlantic region to utilize the Mazor X™ System, a transformative robotic platform for spine surgery. Dr. Christopher Good, Dr. Thomas Schuler and Dr. Colin Haines teamed up to perform a spinal fusion with the new Mazor X™ System which utilizes enhanced analytical tools, precision guidance, optical tracking, and intra-operative verification to make spine surgery safer and less invasive. This latest advancement in spinal surgery was developed at Reston Hospital Center.
“I am very excited to offer the new Mazor X™ System’s robotic technology to our patients,” says Dr. Christopher R. Good, Spine Surgeon and Director of Research at Virginia Spine Institute. “We are proud to have performed the first and the most advanced robotic spine surgery in the Mid-Atlantic region and to be able to offer robotic surgery to our patients both for minimally invasive spine surgery and scoliosis reconstruction. Our research is already showing that robotic surgery can decrease intra-operative radiation to patients in the operating room, as well as improve accuracy of surgery and decrease patient complications. The new Mazor X™ System represents the future of robotic spine surgery and will lead to many future breakthroughs by combining robotic surgery with intra-operative spinal navigation and increase the number and types of surgeries we can perform with robot guidance.”
