Surgical techniques continue to advance, increasing patients’ options and improving accuracy and outcomes. As part of its extensive surgical offerings, Aspen Valley Hospital provides patients access to the Globus ExcelsiusGPS® Robotic Navigation platform. The Globus Robot, or “Globot” for short, combines a rigid robotic arm and full navigation capabilities into a single platform. As a result, the Globot provides surgeons vastly improved visualization and pin-point precision through computer-assisted navigation.
Recently, the robot has become elemental for complex spinal procedures, helping patients with degenerative instability, unstable fractures, scoliosis, stenosis and malignancy.
This impressive robotic-assisted surgical solution relies on detailed imagery. Before surgery, medical images of the patient’s spine are imported into the Globus Robot. Then, these images guide your surgeon, creating a specialized surgical plan that allows extremely accurate placement of hardware.
Stuart Kinsella, MD, MSTR, of the The Steadman Clinic is an expert in the field of spinal surgery, performing more than 100 innovative and minimally invasive surgeries to stabilize the spine. “In real time, I can visualize the position of the proposed instrumentation. The robot has an arm that guides the trajectory of the hardware based on the medical images – as well as the patient’s position on the operating table.”
