Thousand Oaks Acorn – August 12, 2022 – Los Robles Health System offers the community a digitized operating room with the acquisition of two new platforms for spinal surgery. The medical center is ranked No. 1 in California for spine surgery by Healthgrades.
Recently, staff at Los Robles performed its first case, led by Dr. Erik Spayde, using the Globus ExcelsiusGPS Robotic Navigation System. The system combines robotics and navigation in one multifunctional package. The platform is compatible with any imaging system and allows the surgeon to visualize, plan and navigate patient anatomy in real-time.
The system combines a rigid robotic arm and full navigation capabilities into one platform for accurate trajectory alignment in spine surgery. The system streamlines surgical workflow and reduces radiation exposure, enhancing safety and improving efficiency in the operating room.
“This technology has revolutionized the way spine surgery is performed for patients with spinal disorders,” said Spayde, chief of spine surgery at Los Robles Health System.
“Much like we use a GPS device in our car to find the best route to our destination, the robotic navigation system allows us to create a plan that is based on each patient’s anatomy, all while enhancing precision and optimizing our overall patient experience,” he said.
