At Beaumont, our patients can expect to find the most innovative and minimally-invasive surgical technology available - and that includes Mazor X, a robotic surgical assurance platform for spine surgery. Beaumont is the only health system in Southeast Michigan to offer the Mazor X system.
This tool provides many benefits to our patients, including:
- a dramatic reduction in radiation exposure
- a customized surgical plan for each patient before entering the operating room
- improved implant accuracy and safety in the placement of the surgical instruments
- less time to complete the surgery and reduced length of stay following your procedure
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.
