Mazor X Robotic Spine Surgery

Available in Oregon only at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center

If you suffer from back, neck or leg pain as a result of a spine condition, or you’ve been told you may need spine surgery, Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center now offers you the most advanced treatment options.

Minimally-invasive spine surgery using Mazor X robotic technology can help people who are diagnosed with serious spine problems or complications that have not responded to medication, physical therapy or spinal injections. Conditions include:

  • Vertebral fractures
  • Traumatic spine injury
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal weakness or instability
  • “Slipped disc” (Spondylolisthesis)
  • Narrowing of spinal canal (Stenosis)
  • Adult degenerative spinal deformity (Scoliosis, kyphosis)

How Mazor X robotic surgery works

As with other robotic surgical devices, Mazor X does not perform actual surgeries. Instead it provides neurosurgeons with information and anatomical images of the patient’s spine.

Prior to surgery, the Mazor X software system allows the neurosurgeon to create a surgical plan — a virtual 3-D blueprint of the operation — and preview it with the patient.

In the operating room using Mazor X robotic-assisted technology, the blueprint guides the neurosurgeon through the operation with more accuracy and efficiency.

The benefits of robotic spine surgery

Compared to traditional spine surgery, Mazor X robotic technology can:

  • Increase surgical accuracy and help preserve surrounding healthy tissue
  • Allow surgeons to more accurately place hardware during the procedure, thus lowering the risk of complications
  • Reduce the risk of exposure to radiation from imaging scans
  • Improve recovery time due to less time in the operating room and while under anesthesia
  • Reduce pain after the surgery for a quicker return to daily activities

Ask your primary care provider if spine surgery is an option for you. Then find out how the neurosurgeons at Southern Oregon Neurosurgical & Spine Associates in Medford are using the world’s most advanced technology at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center to help people overcome serious spine conditions and injuries.
