Dr. Christopher R. Good, Spine Surgeon at Virginia Spine Institute in Reston, Virginia, has been invited to present his research at The North American Spine Society’s 32nd Annual Meeting on October 26 in Orlando, Florida. This gathering represents the largest spine meeting and exhibition in the world and draws spine care professionals from around the globe to share healthcare updates, innovative techniques and procedures, best practices, and new technologies.
Dr. Good is on the forefront of these technologies with his use of robot-guided spine surgery and is regarded as a world expert in the field. He was the first surgeon in the Mid-Atlantic region to utilize robot-guided technology, and has since performed over 100 surgeries that have resulted in faster recovery times for his patients. His presentation will compare complication and revision rates in robotic-guided versus fluoro-guided minimally invasive lumbar fusion surgery.
“I am very excited to share my research in the Innovation Technologies Sessions; the request to speak in front of thousands of other leaders in the field is a great honor,” says Dr. Good. “Our research is already showing that robotic surgery can decrease intra-operative radiation to patients in the operating room, as well as improve the accuracy of surgery and decrease patient complications. These robotic breakthroughs represent the future of spine surgery and this meeting provides a platform to disseminate this important information.”
