Dr. Fernando Diaz, Beaumont neurosurgeon, explains robotic-assisted spine surgery using the Mazor X system and its benefits.
How Mazor X works
Before entering the operating room for each patient, our neurosurgeons map exactly how they want the surgery to be performed. When the surgeon is ready, Mazor X saves the information.
Once surgery begins, Mazor X helps recreate the same surgical approach that was planned ahead of time - similar to how a GPS system works in your car. With precise mapping and navigation, Mazor X helps the surgeon accurately and safely place instrumentation, which leads to better outcomes.
What Mazor X can be used to treat
Mazor X can be used to treat a wide array of things, including:
- spinal fractures
- degenerative spine
- spine deformity
- spine fusion
- spinal implants
- tumors and more
If you have any question about this technology or any other surgical option at Beaumont, be sure to talk with your surgeon.
