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

Read on to learn what makes Mazor X special and why robotic spine surgery is the new frontier of what is minimally invasive spine surgery.

Robotic spine surgery increases safety and precision

“OrthoIndy Hospital is pleased to be the first hospital in Central Indiana to introduce the Mazor X Guidance System to its spine program,” Dr. Timothy Dicke says, 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,” OrthoIndy spine surgeon Dr. David Schwartz says. “OrthoIndy Hospital is the only hospital in Indiana where I can use both navigation and robotics to perform the safest robotic spine surgery with perfect outcomes for every patient.”

Why is Mazor X so helpful to spinal surgeons?

Hospitals choose the Mazor X System to provide surgeons with a 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 robotic spine surgery 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. Robotic spine surgery helps us to continue our leadership in spine surgery excellence. OrthoIndy Spine consists of seven fellowship-trained surgeons:

“I am excited to bring the Mazor X Robotic Guidance System to Indiana,” OrthoIndy spine surgeon John Dietz says. “Robotic spine 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.”
