The Future of Spine Surgery
is Here

Technology Advancements In Spine Surgery

Technology in spine surgery is a game changer for millions of patients suffering from neck or back conditions. These advancements allow Virginia Spine Institute surgeons the ability to perform less invasive surgical procedures with smaller incisions, less operative bleeding, faster recovery time and shorter hospital stays.

Robotic-Guided Spine Surgery

Patients come to Virginia Spine Institute to receive care from the pioneers in robotic-guided spine surgery. Our team utilizes the Mazor X™ Stealth Edition system which allows our surgeons to plan and create a blueprint for each surgical case, all before setting foot in the operating room. Once in the operating room, our surgeons perform the procedure in its entirety with guidance from the computerized 3D planning system that pin-points each next step. The benefits of using this state-of-the-art technology have not only been proven in patient outcomes but also through the research we have performed.

Augmented Reality

Through continuous innovation, our spine surgeons are advancing spine surgery to be more effective and less invasive for patients. As one of the first spine teams in the world to implement augmented reality into surgery, our surgeons are pioneering ways to make surgery more effective and efficient for our patients. The AR “Xvision” system, made by Augmedics, allows our surgeons to visualize a patient’s 3D spinal anatomy during surgery – almost like they have ‘x-ray vision.’ This groundbreaking technology is the first application of augmented reality in surgery giving surgeons better control and making procedures easier, safer, faster, and less invasive.
