Reston Hospital Center’s skilled spine surgeons are transforming spine surgery by advancing surgical techniques from freehand methods to innovative, minimally invasive, robotic-guided procedures using the Mazor X™ robotics system. With the only Mazor X™ robotic technology in the state of Virginia, Reston Hospital is able to provide our patients the latest tools for increased precision in minimally invasive spine surgery.
The Technology of Tomorrow, Today
Thousands of successful cases have been performed with Mazor X™ robotics systems, which are in daily use in leading medical centers worldwide. Independent scientific research has clinically validated its accuracy, including a recently published 14-center study demonstrating accuracy levels of 98.3%.* Mazor X™ is used to treat patients suffering from debilitating back pain or limited range of motion caused by spinal deformities and degenerative conditions such as slipped vertebrae, scoliosis, and spinal nerve impingement (pinched nerves). To treat these conditions, surgeons use Mazor X™ in procedures such as placing spinal implants in spinal fusion, injecting bone cement in vertebroplasties, and performing biopsies.
Surgical treatment of the spine requires planning and precision; and each patient's anatomy has unique challenges. Surgery with Mazor X™ enables our surgeons to create a customized 3D blueprint of the surgery before entering the operating room. Our experienced surgeons then make incisions and place implants with the highest level of accuracy and in the exact preplanned location using the Mazor X™ to guide their tools according to the surgical blueprint.
