A computer-assisted Spinal Navigation System for minimally invasive spinal surgery for more complicated procedures is an integral part of the Waterbury Hospital Center for Surgical Innovation. The image-based technology used in spinal surgery uses scans of the patient’s anatomy and instruments that are tracked by the Navigation System’s camera. Navigation can help surgeons more precisely guide their instruments in more advanced and complex procedures.
Patient benefits of this minimally invasive technique for spinal.
Less post-operative pain
A lower risk of infection
Decreased blood loss
Faster recovery times
Earlier discharge from hospital
All of this combined means patients are able to get back to their lives more quickly.
Here’s the experience of one of our patients
The O-armTM system is a complete multidimensional surgical imaging system that is designed to meet the workflow demands of the surgical environment. Along with StealthStation™ navigation, the O-arm™ system provides enhanced 3D visibility and surgical feedback. The field of spine surgery has been completely transformed by the use of spinal navigation. In order to produce a real-time 3D map of the patient’s spine, it involves the use of sophisticated imaging techniques, such as CT scans or intraoperative fluoroscopy, together with computerized navigation devices. By using this mapping, surgeons may more accurately and safely plan and carry out difficult spine surgeries.
The primary benefit of spinal navigation is its capacity to give doctors better visualization and direction while performing surgery. Surgeons are better able to traverse the patient’s particular spinal anatomy by incorporating preoperative imaging data into the navigation system. The correct placing of spinal implants like screws, rods, or cages, as well as the reduction of problems, are made possible by the real-time feedback and visualization. The precise bone removal, tumor removal, and alignment adjustments made possible by spinal navigation also contribute to better surgical outcomes and possibly quicker patient recoveries.
