Am I A Candidate?
If you are one of the many that suffer from a debilitating spinal condition, you may be a candidate for spine surgery with the Mazor Robotics Renaissance® Guidance System or the MazorX System. Surgery with Mazor Robotics technology provides increased safety and precision for a wide variety of spine procedures, and in some cases, allows for minimally-invasive surgery.
Conditions commonly treated by spine surgery with Mazor Robotics technology are:
Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine bends to the side abnormally; either to the right or left. The curvature can be moderate to severe. Any part of the spine can be bent in scoliosis; but the most common regions are the chest area (thoracic scoliosis) or the lower part of the back (lumbar scoliosis).
Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative disease is the result of a continuous process based on degenerative cell changes, affecting tissues or organs will increasingly deteriorate over time, whether due to normal bodily wear or lifestyle choices such as exercise or eating habits.
A herniated disc refers to a problem with one of the rubbery cushions (discs) between the individual bones (vertebrae) that stack up to make your spine. A spinal disc is a little like a jelly donut, with a softer center encased within a tougher exterior.
Kyphosis, also known as a round back or hunchback, is a condition in which the spine in the upper back has an excessive curvature. The upper back, or thoracic region of the spine, is supposed to have a slight natural curve.
Spondylolisthesis is a condition in which one of the bones of the spine (vertebrae) slips out of place onto the vertebra below it. If it slips too much, the bone might press on a nerve, causing pain. Usually, the bones of the lower back are affected.
While many patients are candidates for surgery with Mazor Robotics technology, talk to your physician about all surgical and non-surgical options available to you
