The future of spine surgery is now

Maximum Results

With Surgical Technology

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

Augmented Reality (AR)

 As one of the first spine teams in the world to implement augmented reality into surgery, our surgeons are pioneering ways to make surgery safer and less invasive for our patients. This groundbreaking technology allows our surgeons to visualize a patient’s 3D spinal anatomy during surgery — almost like they have ‘x-ray vision.’ With this tool, surgeries are less invasive and allow patients to recover faster than traditional surgery. 

Robotic-Guided Spine Surgery

Patients come to VSI to receive care from the pioneers in robotic-guided spine surgery. 

This innovative technology creates a smarter operating room by planning and creating a blueprint for each surgery. Our surgeons perform the procedure in its entirety with guidance from the computerized 3D planning system that pinpoints 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.

3D Printing Technology

Drawing inspiration from industries like aerospace and automobile, which use 3D printing technology to fabricate custom parts, VSI is leading the field of spine surgery in progressively incorporating this transformative approach to revolutionize spine surgery.

The creation of a personalized implant begins with detailed imaging of the patient’s spine through a CT scan and X-Ray imaging. Proprietary algorithms are then used to generate a personalized surgical plan and implant designs. Once the plan is approved by the surgeon, the implants are 3D printed, sterile packaged, and delivered to the hospital in advance of the surgery.

This remarkable surgical achievement marks a momentous leap forward in global spine surgery, aiming to offer patients the personalized care they truly deserve for the future. VSI remains at the forefront of medical advancements, embracing state-of-the-art technologies to reshape the landscape of spine care worldwide.

Frequently Asked Questions

Surgical Technology

  • Motion analysis provides us with extensive insights into your pathology for surgery
  • Through an AI computer generated flexion & extension radiograph, we are able to complete precise measurement for each motion segment of your spine and choose the right implant size for you.
  • We do not want to give you too much motion or too little motion, but just the right amount to recreate the natural motion you should have.
  • We customize it for each patient to restore your natural given motion and stability (restoration of function).

Robotic guidance is used for posterior instrumented fusions ie when screws are placed within the bones of a patient’s back. This could be for fusion surgery in the low back, mid back or the neck. Robotic guidance may also be used for surgical correction of scoliosis or kyphosis.

We will obtain a medical history, physical exam, and imaging from you to further assess if you are a candidate for robotic guided surgery.

These types of stereotactic guidance systems benefit the patient, as they improve surgical accuracy and precision. With spine surgery, accuracy translates into patient safety.

The benefit to the doctor will be that we are able to work more efficiently in the operating room. There are multiple benefits to using this advanced technology for the surgeon and surgical team. The surgical team will work more efficiently in the operating room and this will lead to safer, more ergonomic operations for the physicians.
