All About Globus Medical's ExcelsiusGPS Surgical Robot

Understanding the ExcelsiusGPS System

The ExcelsiusGPS robot by Globus Medical is tailored for intricate spinal and neurological surgeries. This technology represents a milestone in surgical precision and efficiency.

The distinctiveness of the ExcelsiusGPS  lies in its ability to facilitate minimally invasive spinal surgeries, integrating a robust robotic arm with sophisticated navigation skills. This convergence empowers surgeons with exceptional accuracy and efficiency, providing real-time insights to strategize and guide the surgery's progression.

Cranial and Spinal Procedures

The ExcelsiusGPS system is adept at performing a range of cranial and spinal procedures:

Spinal Procedures:

  1. Spinal Fusion: Used to stabilize the spine by joining vertebrae together, spinal fusion procedures are crucial for addressing spinal deformities or injuries. The ExcelsiusGPS aids surgeons in precisely placing screws, rods, or instrumentation for optimal alignment and stability.

  2. Discectomy: Involving the removal of a herniated disc that may compress nerves, the ExcelsiusGPS assists in precise navigation, minimizing risks to surrounding tissues and nerves.

  3. Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty: These procedures involve injecting bone cement into fractured vertebrae to stabilize them. The ExcelsiusGPS ensures accurate placement of the cement for optimal stability and pain relief.

  4. Laminectomy: Surgeons use this procedure to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerves by removing part of the vertebral bone called the lamina. The ExcelsiusGPS aids in precise bone removal, improving surgical outcomes.

Cranial Procedures:

  1. Craniotomy: This procedure involves surgical removal of part of the skull to access the brain, commonly used for tumor removal, treatment of brain aneurysms, or addressing brain trauma. The ExcelsiusGPS aids surgeons in precise navigation through delicate cranial structures.

  2. Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS): Utilized for treating movement disorders like Parkinson's disease, the ExcelsiusGPS assists in accurately placing electrodes within specific brain areas for successful DBS procedures.

Enhanced Recovery and Efficacy

The ExcelsiusGPS system boasts expedited recovery times. Following minimally invasive procedures, patients often stand on the same day and leave the hospital within a day. Recovery timelines, variable for individuals, commonly exhibit improved symptoms and pain reduction within 2 to 4 weeks post-surgery, marking a testament to the efficacy of the ExcelsiusGPS innovation.
