Mazor Robotic Spine Surgery Coming to TOC

Posted on: 07/19/2017

Our spine surgeons, recognized in America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Spine Surgery by Healthgrades (2015 and 2017) are bringing this new technique to TOC and North Alabama.


Surgical treatment of the spine requires planning and precision crafted around each patient’s unique challenges and anatomy – a process streamlined by Mazor Robotics Technology. That’s why we’ve teamed with Mazor to be the first in North Alabama to bring robotic surgery to our patients needing spine surgery.

The Mazor Robotics system allows our surgeons to use images from a computerized tomography scan (CT scan) that is taken before surgery to create a blueprint for each surgical case. These images allow our surgeon to plan the procedure with a high degree of precision before ever entering the operating room. This new technique provides our surgical patient with smaller incisions for faster recovery time, less exposure to radiation, and improved surgical accuracy. This decreases overall risk during surgery.
