What is Robotic Surgery? How it is Beneficial?by Total Spine Brain Total Spine Brain
Summary: The following article is all about the robotic spine surgery. It talks about what the procedure is and how I benefits.
Surgical procedures are always associated with risks. When surgery is done near to the spinal cord, complications can occur which may lead to subsequent pain and even impairment. If there are such complications you need a medically advanced surgery.
Those who want to have an absolutely painless and minimally invasive spine surgery can go in for the latest surgical process. So, if you are experiencing a chronic back pain and are non-responsive to any type of non-surgical treatments, you can go in for a latest surgery known as robotic surgery.
What is Robotic Spine Surgery?
Robotic spine surgery is minimally invasive and technologically advanced. Those who are experiencing a chronic form of back pain go in for this surgery. It has a number of advantages. The latest advancements in the technology have enabled a much cheaper and more advanced yet accurate surgical procedure. With the help of 3D imaging surgeons can map out the procedures precisely and make use of the plan real-time imaging that can guide robotic arm to perform surgery. The surgical team is there to monitor the entire process of instrument and implantation in real-time.
Benefits of Robotic Surgery:
Robotic spine surgery has a number of benefits.
More precision as the surgery is performed by the real-time imagery.
Improved level of workflow for the surgical team.
Much shorter duration which means you have to spend much lesser time in anesthesia.
Reduced amount of pain and a shorter stay in the hospital.
Apart from that, this particular surgical procedure is safer and quicker with fewer complications. Safety and accuracy of this medical procedure is assured.
Herniated disc which is also known as slipped bulged and ruptured disc is a fragment of the disc nucleus which is pushed out of the annulus into the spinal canal through a rupture in the annulus. Discs that get herniated are in the early stage of the degeneration. When these discs get displaced they lead to pain which turns severe in an extreme case.
Herniated discs can occur in any part of the spine at any time. They are more common in the lumbar spine but they can also occur in the neck or the cervical spines. Excessive strain or injury to the spine can cause herniated disc. However, the disc materials begin to degenerate when you begin to age and the ligaments begin to weaken. A relatively minor injury can cause the disc rupture.
