Dr. Good Featured on WUSA9 News For Latest Advances in Robotic Spine Surgery
Dr. Christopher Good and the spine surgeons at Virginia Spine Institute were recently featured on Washington DC’s leading local news channel, WUSA9. This team of nationally-recognized spinal specialists were recognized for pioneering the latest advances in spine surgery. Dr. Good, alongside his colleagues Dr. Schuler and Dr. Haines, were the first in the Mid-Atlantic region to perform this robot-guided surgery, and appreciate its ability to allow exact precision for surgery. This leads to improved surgical outcomes and ultimately greater success for patients.
Dr. Good is proud to announce the results from the first multi-center prospective study of robotic-guided spine surgery. A group of 10 physicians from nine U.S. states have investigated the clinical outcomes of 379 patients to provide scientific evidence of the benefits of using Mazor Robotics' Renaissance Guidance System in spine surgery. Dr. Good presented these promising findings at the North American Spine Society Annual Meeting on October 26th.
“The results of this study completely eliminated any doubt I have had about the superiority of robotic-guided spine surgery,” commented Dr. Christopher Good, a nationally recognized orthopedic surgeon at the Virginia Spine Institute. “We see remarkable improvements in patient safety and value as well as cost savings when using Mazor Core™ technology-based systems.”
WHAT ARE THE STUDY RESULTS?
- Five-fold reduction in surgical complications
- Seven-fold reduction in revision surgeries compared to freehand-based minimally invasive lumbar fusion surgeries
