BSA is pleased to be the first medical center in the Texas Panhandle to offer patients a minimally-invasive spine surgery solution. The ExcelsiusGPS™, the next revolution in robotic spine surgery from Globus Medical, offers patients faster recovery times and reduced side effects after surgery compared to traditional spine procedures.
ExcelsiusGPS™ is designed to improve accuracy and optimize patient care by using robotics and navigation, much like a GPS in a car. On the day of surgery medical images are taken and imported into ExcelsiusGPS™. The surgeon uses these images to determine the size and placement of implants and creates a patient plan based on the patient's anatomy.
This plan is used to guide the rigid robotic arm to a specific region of the spine, similar to a planned route or pathway on a GPS. The surgeon uses this pathway or route to accurately place the implants using surgical instruments. Throughout the procedure, the surgical instruments and implants are continuously displayed on the screen for the surgeon and staff to monitor. This display allows the surgeon to view live feedback during the procedure for more precise implant placement.
