OrthoIndy Hospital is the first facility in Indiana to add the Mazor X™ Robotic Guidance System to its hospital. The Mazor X Robotic Guidance System combines pre-operative planning tools and analytics with intra-operative guidance, giving OrthoIndy spine surgeons advanced spinal surgery options.

“OrthoIndy Hospital is pleased to be the first hospital in Central Indiana to introduce the Mazor X Robotic Guidance System to its spine program,” said Dr. Timothy Dicke, OrthoIndy President and Chief Executive Officer. “This precision tool will further add to the ability of our skilled spine surgeons to safely perform complex surgeries. At OrthoIndy, we have always been committed to providing the highest quality of spine care for our patients.”

The first procedure in Indiana with the Mazor X was performed at OrthoIndy Hospital on March 29, 2018.

“I treat all my patients like they are part of my family, in doing so I want them all to have the safest surgery with a perfect outcome every time,” said Dr. David Schwartz, OrthoIndy spine surgeon. “OrthoIndy Hospital is the only hospital in Indiana where I can use both navigation and robotics to perform the safest spine surgery with perfect outcomes for every patient.”

Hospitals choose the Mazor X System to provide surgeons with pre-operative assessment of a patient and intra-operative trajectory precision when treating that patient. As spinal surgery has evolved, more focus has been placed on minimally invasive techniques, and this is where the Mazor X System can deliver its greatest technological benefits.

Surgery with Mazor Robotics technology provides increased safety and precision for a wide variety of spine procedures, and in some cases, allows for minimally-invasive surgery

OrthoIndy Hospital has established its reputation as a leader in spine surgery with its advanced technologies and excellence in patient care. The Mazor X Robotic Guidance System helps us to continue our leadership in spine surgery excellence. OrthoIndy Spine consists of seven fellowship-trained surgeons, including: Drs. Michael Coscia, John Dietz, Robert Huler, Gabriel Jackson, Kevin O’Neill, Greg Poulter and David Schwartz.

“I am excited to bring the Mazor X Robotic Guidance System to Indiana,” said Dr. John Dietz, OrthoIndy spine surgeon. “Robotic surgery has been very helpful in other settings and we are now beginning to realize the benefits in spinal surgery. I’m looking forward to taking a big step into the future of spine surgery with this robotic system.”

If you are one of the many that suffer from a debilitating spinal condition or back pain, you may be a candidate for spine surgery with the Mazor X Robotic Guidance System.
