The Center for Musculoskeletal Disorders and Health Plus ASC Perform World’s First Robotic Guided SI Fusion In An Ambulatory Setting
Englewood, NJ’s Center for Musculoskeletal Disorders, a pioneer in spine surgery, has performed the world’s first ever robotic-guided sacroiliac fusion in an outpatient ambulatory setting with the assistance of Mazor Robotics Technology.
Under the guidance of CMD’s Dr. Vagmin Vora and Jonathan Lewin, Saddle Brook, NJ’s HealthPlus Surgery Center hosted a 45-year-old patient who had been injured in a work accident. Using minimally invasive techniques to place three titanium implants, Dr. Vora noted, “We are thrilled to be participating in this sophisticated advancement combining robotic guidence, minimally invasive surgery, and outpatient medicine. We believe this will soon be the standard of care for the surgical treatment of this pathology.”
Yan Moshe, CEO of Healthplus Surgical center of Saddle brook NJ, commented “We are excited and privileged to be at the cutting edge of spinal surgery and are committed to advancing its place in our outpatient setting. The robotic platform was easily adopted by our eager staff.”
The patient left the ambulatory center 4 hours after the procedure.
Focused on minimally invasive spine procedures, pairing the robotic platform with an ASC setting allows for fewer complications, faster recovery, lowered costs, and an overall improved treatment option for spinal disorders.
The Mazor Robotics Renaissance® Guidance System combines 3D planning, mechanical guidance, and 1.5mm accuracy to provide surgeons with a better solution for: minimally invasive and percutaneous fusions, complex spinal deformity correction, trauma cases, and cranial procedures.
